So my visual studio ended up crashing due to my hard drive dying. Unfortunately the work I had completed yesterday to my form was corrupted. Luckily I had a backup and then performed a beyond compare on the designer.cs file. I took all of the new buttons and then had to fix any errors when I opened the file due to the code in the .cs file not being there. Also to be noted I could not use the original .cs file since I was full of nulls. I just took in the old one.
