    I have replaced my form tags in my master page with:
    <sf1:CmsForm  tags. The master page works fine in Sitefinity beta3.

    However, I can no longer edit the page with Visual Studio in design view as when I change from code view to design view I get the following error:

    Error Creating Control - form1
    Unable to cast object of type 'System.Web.UI.Design.HtmlIntrinsicControlDesigner' to type 'System.Web.UI.Design.ControlDesigner'

    Any ideas how I can continue to design my master pages in Visual Studio?

    Hello Len,

    You can change <sf1:CmsForm to <form and design your master page in VS. We recomend changing back the <form tag when you ar using this master page in Sitefinity. Most features will work without <sf1:CmsForm>, but don't rely on this.
     

    Kind regards,
