Parameters glyph missing when working with Custom Views

Do you have an example using parameters?
We are currently evaluating this issue and will update this article when we have more information.

Steps to Duplicate

  1. Follow the steps in the VBA Essentials Guide for "Custom View: Creating Custom Parts"
  2. Notice the private function "IBBCustomViewDesign_ShowParameterForm" contains comments: 
     ' When a user clicks the "parameter" glyph in the designer, this method is invoked.
     ' Typically, you would show some sort of front-end form to get criteria from the user.
     ' Then, you store the criteria as a string (hint: use XML). The custom view engine will
     ' store this string for you and make it available at runtime (when an end user opens an
     ' actual constituent record). At that point, you would interrogate the string and apply
     ' criteria appropriately.
  3. Continue with the sample but also notice that there is no "parameter" glyph when in the designer while attempting to edit the view.
