Drag and Drop not working with external monitor [closed]

I’m working on a small project for my studies. It’s the first contact with SQL in Visual Studio 2019 Community Edition for me.

My study documents say that I can drag a table from the data sources window onto a form and a DataGridView would appear. That doesn’t work. So I changed the property of the table from DataGridView to Details.

According to the documents from my university it should now add a TextBox with a Label for every row in the table.

Guess what? That won’t work either. The cursor changes to the “Drop here” symbol, but if I drop the element onto the form nothing happens.

There is no error message or something like that.

Here’s a pic of the cursor. Looks good for me. I’m connected to the db as well. It’s a database file on my computer, so there can’t be connectivity problems.

Google and the microsoft docs didn’t help me with that.

Maybe someone else can? 🙂

Answer

Adding to your answer…
I can’t test this on my machine…but I think its worth a try.

Goto Tools->Options Environment->Preview Features.
Check Optimize rendering for screens with different pixel densities (requires restart)

In VS2019…
Goto Tools->Options->Environment->General
Check Optimize rendering for screens with different pixel densities (requires restart)

Also…be sure your on the latest version…there were issues on some of the preview versions.
