    Each time I open a report from VISUAL STUDIOS 19 in DESIGN since I installed AR14, it build my entire solution each time for absolutly nothing.

    So I end up waiting 2 min or more each time when I open a report.

    Can you deactivate that, or they are something to do because it's pathetic waiting 2 min, our solution is big. and waiting 2 min for nothing each time is not really good

    It's like impossible to work, it has been a day now wasting time in VS that NON STOP REBUILD EVERYTHING FOR NOTHING while switching from REPORT TO another SECTION REPORT, AS SOON I MODIFY THE CODE BEHIND, I SWITCH BANG REBUIL AUTO

    I am working on your case. I am trying to reproduce the issue at my end and will inform you once I get any conclusion on this.

    ok thank you, I suppose its from AR14, not sure 100%, but still, for example, change the code behind a report, add a section, change the code in the section, as soon you go in the design, it rebuild, i dont know if VS have an option to disable this behavior, but i dont think it was doing that on AC13, if so, it was faster lol, because i wasted so much time last day because of the non-stop rebuild...

    I have checked multiple times but unable to reproduce the issue at my end: I have followed the below steps:
    1: Create a SectionReport code-based WinForm application
    2: Open the SectionReport designer
    3: Add some code in code behind of section report
    4: Reopen the SectionReport designer
    5: Add a section in the report
    6: Add some code in code behind of section report
    7: Reopen the SectionReport designer

    Could you please provide the stripped-down sample so that I can reproduce the issue at our end.

    when you change the code behind it must be saved, if they are not saved,
    I have 1 report with 1 section, let say they are both open, modify the code from one and save. then just click on the already opened design. it will build.

    Our project is big, have like more then 100 reports and its a library not a winform. (.NET Framework 4.7.2)

    will see for making a demo but right now I dont have time to much work...

    Please see the attached gif where I tried to replicate the issue at my end as well following the steps you mentioned. Let me know if I missed any step.
    I've also attached the sample application which I used to try and replicate the issue. Since your project is big and can't possibly share it, you can modify the attached application to replicate the issue and send it back.

    Can you also try uninstalling and re-installing ActiveReports 14.

    I tried your demo, its still build,
    the more easy to debug it is:

    1. Show the output window (popup) so you can always see it
    2. Open the design report, double click, now watch the build....

    Sure its fast the project is empty but Imagine a solution with 40 projects.

    So it build all 40 projects for nothing. So a minute or 2 later it show up.

    I cannot open the demo you sent. Impossible de charger le type 'GrapeCity.ActiveReports.Tools.EmbeddedResourceManager' à partir de l'assembly 'GrapeCity.ActiveReports, Version=13.1.17688.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=cc4967777c49a3ff'
    but still i see the compile before the error occur.

    So I cannot test the other rebuild bug, but still related to the first easy to replicate.

    Thanks for your patience. I am able to replicate the issue after saving the code behind,

    I have escalated the issue to our development team(AR-24445) and will inform you once I get any information from them.

    Sorry for the all inconvenience caused to you.
