why reportviewer is unabled? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there, after goggling a lot I found that I can use reportviewer to preview reports in VB2010 express. I have downloaded the Reportviewer 2010 from Microsoft. From VB2010 I went to Toolbox -> Add Item and I added Reportviewer Winforms.. I can see it now on my toolbox but it is UNABLED. Why is that?, I have reinstalled it several times.

    Any suggestion?

  • If I'm not mistaken, the standalone ReportViewer for VSExpress was released for Visual Web Developer 2008.

  • Hi Ferry, thanks for your reply. Yes, I have download the Reporviewer for VSExpress. I can open code with the reportviewer on it but in Design mode the control ( in the toolbox) is unabled. What I have done is copy/paste the control from another project. I am sure it has something to do with my settings in this new project but I couldn't find the problem...:(
