FIX: Visual Studio 2010 IDE crashes and a “Stack Overflow” exception is thrown when you switch to design view on a webpage whose controls contains much content.

Consider the following scenario:
  • You use the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 IDE to open an ASP.NET webpage.
  • The webpage contains either templated controls or controls that have editable regions. For example, the webpage contains some of the following controls:   
    • asp:FormView
    • asp:Panel
    • asp:Wizard
    • asp:WebpartZone
    • asp:GridView
    • asp:View 
  • The source markup for these controls contains much content. For example, the source markup for these controls contains hundreds of child controls.
  • You try to switch to Design View.
In this scenario, the IDE crashes and a “Stack Overflow” exception is thrown. Additionally, you may receive an event log entry that resembles the following:
