I'm getting an error when adding a view to the tabworkspace with the designer in VS2005 in the May release.
An exception is thrown stating that an object has an null reference (not instantiated).

It seems to be the presenter that the object builder injects. The code is generated by the guidance. I thought it was possible to drag views onto the tabworkspace in the designer.

Is this a bug in the May release or am I missing something.

Hi HFejit,

As far as I know, you can add smart parts with the designer within SmartPartPlaceHolders. I'd recommend you to read this post and also to check the "Designing Smart Clients with the Composite UI Application Block & the Smart Client Software Factory" whitepaper (

Hope it helps!
