Consider the following scenario:
The code in the head file of the user control should contain a member variable declaration for the controls that are included in the user control. However, in this scenario, the member variable declaration for the Button control may disappear from the head file.
A circular control reference has been made. A control cannot be owned by or parented to itself. Hide <> at System.Windows.Forms.Control.CheckParentingCycle(Control bottom, Control toFind) at System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlCollection.Add(Control value) at System.Windows.Forms.Design.ControlDesigner.DesignerControlCollection.Add(Control c)
This problem occurs because Visual C++ Designer deletes the member variable declaration for the Button control from the head file of the user control.
