We have a ASP.NET Menu control located within a Wizard control.  When we change a property (e.g. Text) in a MenuItem, the change is effective in the design view, but is not sychronized to source view.

How is this listed as "closed as fixed". This isn't fixed, and from MS's response it won't be. I've run into this issue on almost every project I've worked on in 2008 and that's only a handful of them. If 2010 has as many serious bugs (and this is a very serious bug in the IDE that MS is ignoring) and they continue to refuse to address problems that make the product almost unusable (some projects I spend more time trying to get the IDE to work than actually programming) I'll have to give up and go to Java or some other non MS language. Shame on Microsoft for having no regard for the struggles of developers who are probably one of the strongest proponents of their tech.

The bug is fixed in the next version of VS. At this point there is no update for 2008 SP1 available - sorry.

One more comment. We only see this behaviour in large projects that contain many pages.

I just wanted to add that this issue is not limited to menu controls within a wizard control. We have had this happen on numerous occasions and in various scenarios. I have even had it happen when simply dragging a label control onto the design surface. Design view shows the change, source view does not. Once it happens, no subsequent changes made in design view are reflected in source view.

Sometimes if we close the document and re-open it, we will be able to use the design view again in the document. Other times we have had to completely shut down and restart VS 2008 and re-load the project in order to fix the behaviour.

This issue makes VS 2008 virtually UNUSABLE as a web development platform in our organization. It has already cost us a considerable amount of money in terms of lost development time.

Does "fixed in the next version of VS" mean:

1. A service pack or hot fix for VS 2008?
2. The next full release of Visual Studio (2010 or whatever it may be)?

The latter is simply an unacceptable "resolution" for those of us who use VS 2008 for developing web-based applications.

At the very least, we need a workaround.
