This post is about solving the issue with Visual Studio 2010 failing to show the design view of an .aspx-page. Luckily, it’s an easy and pretty classical fix.
While trying to view or edit an aspx-page in design mode in Visual Studio 2010, the window is just plain empty and there’s little you can do about it – selecting view markup or hitting F7 may not do anything and restarting the Visual Studio doesn’t help.
The Design view requires connection to the SharePoint site where you’ll be deploying the solution (or rather, any site). Set the Site URL property in the project settings:
Then close the aspx page and reopen it, and it should work.
