    Hello,

    I want to edit my report in design modus, but I can't get any items from the toolbox.

    All the entries are disabled.

    How can I solve this problem?

    Best regards

    Hello Simon,

    I am sorry to hear of the difficulties you have.

    In order to determine the reason why the controls are not available for the project you have loaded I would suggest to enable diagnostics for the Visual Studio Toolbox. This can be done by adding a DWORD registry value called “ShowDiagnosticToolboxTooltips”, set to 1, under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\[VisualStudioInstanceId]. After you start Visual Studio again, load the project and hover over the disabled controls you should see more information from the diagnostics. Please get back to us with the details, so we can assist you further.

    I am looking forward to your reply.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    I have tried this and it works.(see attachment)

    Rightclick on menu and reset to default.

    After a few seconds it works.

    Best regards
