Report control redistributable 2010 in Visual C# Express 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys


    I have this new role that will require me to deal with SQL data sources programmatically. I am trying to add the Report Control to my visual c# express 2010. I downloaded the redistributable 2010 and installed it. The installation completed successfully; however, I am still not seeing the Report Control in the lefthand toolbox in c# express. What am I doing wrong?

  • The redistributable only installs the ReportViewer runtime components it does not install any of the Visual Studio components (i.e. Report Designer, Toolbox integration). You can add the control to the toolbox manually by right clicking on the toolbox and selecting choose items, but you will only get the control designer support. You have to install Visual Studio 2010 Standard or higher to get the Report Designer.
