    I added the Telerik controls to the toolbox.

    I am unable to drag them to the design surface of the page. It displays the slash/circle.

    Normal controls drag OK.

    The attached image shows both. As soon as a normal control is selected, the design surface changes to accept the control (area boxes are displayed). This does not happen for the Telerik controls.

    For now, I just type the controls into the xaml as needed. This works including Intellisense.

    Thanks,
    Gary Davis

    I had the same issue. So I manually deleted all the Telerik items from the toolbox and then manually added them back.

    Hello Gary,

    Could you please check if the solution that Fredrick proposes will work for you? If you have correctly installed the controls and added them to the Visual Studio toolbox, you should not experience any difficulties while using them.

    Do not hesitate to get back to us in case of further questions.

    Best wishes,

    I went into the chooser and noticed that each Telerik control was listed twice (identical pairs). One with the checkbox checked and the other not.  I unchecked all and clicked OK. They were all removed from the toolbox. I went back in to the chooser and the entries were no longer duplicated. I selected the checkbox on each and clicked OK. Everything is fine now.

    Thanks

    I just got back to my project after a while and noticed it happened again.As before, the chooser entries were duplicated except for one (infinitelistbox, I think). The fix mentioned above worked quickly. I must have an old dll or gac assembly around.

    Hi Gary,

    Thanks for writing back.

    If you believe that there is still an issue that causes the controls to be erroreusly populated in the VS Toolbox, please write back with some further details on how we can reproduce it. This will help us identify the reason for the issue and resolve it.

    For now, we will consider this ticket closed.

    Thanks for your time.

    All the best,
