Cannot find Toobox tab in Visual C# Express


  • I am new to prgraming language and have been working through the book Microsoft Visual C and am about to create my first Graphical Application. I am told to click the Toolbox tab that apears to the left of the form in the Design View window and I am not able to find it.  I see to the left of the form the "Document Outline" and the "Data Sources" tab, but am anot able to find anything resembling a toolbox except a "size" tab that controls the size of the form, which seems to be all that it does.  The only thing that resembles a toolbox is the Properties folder under Solution Explorer but that appears to right of the form not the left. I would greatly appreciate any help!

  • The Toolbox should be shown by default on the left. If it is not then use the View menu to open the Toolbox.  The Toolbox is context sensitive so it'll have content based upon what the active editor window contains.
