Issue with pages losing all information and not being found

I did a lot of work testing things out for various devices and making sure I could get the functionality I wanted. However, I have came up against some issues that make me start over from scratch.

Every so often, when I hit start on the designer to test something, I’ll get an error that it can’t find one of the pages. The .xaml is still listed in the designer. Then when I try going to that page, it’s just blank, and I can’t do anything with it. It has to be deleted and created again.

And, it’s not just the page I was working on. Other pages are blanked as well.

I currently have a project that has a navigation page with links to all of my other pages, but all of the pages are empty.

No idea what the deal is, but it makes it difficult to continue.

Make backups all the time. I give it different versions number and then you can go back.

Hi Kevinicus,
make sure that the check mark is set for isvisible.


That’s disappointing that it looks like this is what I’ll have to do.

Frequent backups are always a good idea, but it’s looking like I’ll have to create new ones every time I want to even test any additions.

Yeah, none of that is even an option. The only thing I can change anything on is the name. There are no properties shown besides the name and type.

Can you show us a picture?
