Making missing buttons show up in a form

I'm working in VB.NET. I added several buttons to a form, did something to try to align them, and now I can't see those buttons on the form. I do see the buttons in the list of objects at the top of the Properties window. How do I make the missing buttons show up in the form? When I select other buttons in the Properties window, the button gets the focus in the form, but not the two buttons I lost.
Select the buttons in the objects list in the Properties List and check the properties of these buttons to see what happened to them. Make changes to the properties to get them back onto your form.
