print form not found in tools


  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    Could you please tell me what's the version of your Visual Studio?

    I take VS2015 as an example:

    And as far as I know, if you want to use print form control. You need to install the PowerPack controls:

    you can download them from the Download Center

    After download and installing it. Then you need to add the PrintForm component to the Toolbox:

    The following procedure describes how to add the component to the Toolbox:

    1. On the File menu, choose New Project.

    2. In the New Project dialog box, select Windows Application, and then click OK.

    3. In the Toolbox,  select the Printing tab.

    4. On the Tools menu, right click and Choose Toolbox Items.

    5. In the Choose Toolbox Items dialog box, select PrintForm from the .NET Framework Components list and check the checkbox next to it.

    6. Click OK to add it to the Toolbox.

    Then you will find the print form control in the toolbox:

    Best Regards,
