    After I upgrade from R3 2018 to R1 2019. I can't see Reporting toolbox in Toolbox of VS 2017. When I click to show all. I can see toolbox of R3 2018, but  I can't use it because my reporting Version is R1 2019.

    Anyone can help me?

    Hi Kevin,

    Please test adding the missing toolbox items manually:

    1. Right-click in the Toolbox area.
    2. Select the "Choose items..." option from the context menu.
    3. In the ".NET Framework Components" tab of the "Choose Toolbox items" dialog check the missing components from the Telerik.Reporting assembly.

    If this does not help, try reinstalling Telerik Reporting.

    Hello.

     

    I'm using Telerik Reporting R2 2019 with Visual Studio 2017.

    I'm having trouble with the toolbox since it is missing some items. Even if I click "Choose Items" under the Telerik Reporting R2 2019 toolbox and check the items I need and click OK, it still won't appear in the toolbox. I've tried resetting the toolbox, uninstalling telerik and disabling and enabling the telerik tools but to no avail.

    I tried clicking "Show All" under the toolbox and it shows the items I've checked but they're not clickable/hidden/disabled.

    Please see attached photo.

     

    What can I do to resolve this? 

    Hoping for a response ASAP.

    Thanks.

    Hi Maria,

    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\[VS2017InstanceId]. 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.

    Another thing worth mentioning is that we have determined that there is a dependency between Telerik Reporting and Telerik UI for WPF. We had a client, who was able to use the ReportViewer from the toolbox once Telerik UI for WPF was installed. It is worth trying that out while we analyze the diagnostics details.

    I am looking forward to your reply.

    Regards,
    Nikola

    Hello Maria,

    The Chart is obsolete report item which can be added only programmatically and it is not possible to be inserted from the Toolbox. Note that the chart is not supported in .NET Core projects and in projects deployed on Azure. We recommend the usage of the more advanced Graph item which allows you to generate different chart objects.
    The grayed components are not supported in the Visual Studio designer - check the attached screenshot for how the VS Reporting Toolbox should look.
