WPF design interface display is not normal

今天不吃糖 96 Reputation points


I have updated to the latest version of visual studio Community Edition(2019 v16.7.5).

But WPF design interface display is not normal. The form background has a black square, and the properties window becomes black. Changing the visual studio theme can temporarily solve the problem, but once the software is restarted, this will happen again.

    I tried to re install windows and visual studio, but I couldn't fix the problem. Later it was found that the problem was the driver of AMD graphics card. When I unloaded the graphics driver, the XAML design interface displayed normally. I will have problems installing any version or the latest version of the graphics driver. I've already fed this back to AMD.

    Perhaps try disabling the “Optimize rendering […]” and “Automatically adjust […]” options in Environment, General tab of Options dialog (Tools menu).

    Also close Visual Studio until Visual Studio Installer finishes its job.
