Old error, new look !

In playing with Windows.Forms in VS 2008, I got the same old error I use to get in VS 2005 sometimes:

Type must be a type provided by the runtime. Parameter name: type   

The good news is it looks so much prettier in VS 2008.  It's not fixed, but look, isn't it pretty ?

error

 

 

So why is it that the phrase "lipstick on a pig" come flooding into my mind ???

 

BTW: The fix is to show the DataSources window before trying to open the form designer
