Openspan Design file not appearing
I have created an automation file(.os) with certain controls related to outlook and web application in openspan Studio.
it was all fine, but when tried re-opening the solution as the automation was not triggered, i am not able to see the design part of this file. However i am able to see the source code file(.os) in the folder path.
Please can someone help me recover the design file from the existing source code , in openspan studio.
Note: when i tried opening the file i got an error saying one of the parameter (parametername:Type) cannot be null which is related to mailitem.
it opted if i still want to open the designer file and i chose yes, and it opened with nothing appering.
now i am adding controls to it, and are named with next index(ex: label3 is created now as Label1 and 2 are already used in lost design)

It sounds like the automation file has become corrupted in the process of closing and re-opening the solution. I would suggest that you manually enter in the necessary info that is required for the mailitem parameter type, by opening the .os file in notepad. The .os file should read just like an xml file.
It would also help to create a dummy automation with the same mailitem design block filled out correctly, then compare the dummy automation .os file to the corrupt autx .os file to figure out what information is missing from the corrupt file.
If that doesn't work, you will likely need to redesign the corrupt autx again through Studio.
