VS 2022 problem with getting properties of a control from XAML

Lloyd Sheen 1,401 Reputation points

I have the hardest time getting the properties for a control in the Properties window. I click on the XAML for controls and nothing. I have to click on multiple controls before VS decides to show properties. I am using VS 2022 and it has been like this since the install so it is not an update of the IDE problem.

    I am not seeing this issue. Is this happening on all xaml pages or just one?

    It is happening on all XAML pages. Once it gets the properties for a control it seems to be better at getting properties but will revert to not getting them. I often have to close the XAML window and reopen it to get the properties.
