Problem with editing

I've added to the program editor and works flawlessly. When editing the form (VS 2010) I get the error:

The variable 'scintilla1' is either undeclared or was never assigned.

Designer file is present in the line:

this.Controls.Add (this.scintilla1);

What could be the problem?

Sounds like an exception was thrown in the scintilla1 constructor and your control wasn't actually created. Did you get an exception placing it in the Designer? That's when I typically see that happen.

Try removing code in the designer (perhaps by hand) and drop it on again and see what happens. If you do get an exception I would bet it is related to not having the search path configured properly. There are plenty of answers in the forums on how to do that.
