    Hi All,

    I am working on a Winforms aplication.
    I do not see a reportviewer in the toolbox.
    However, if i use a web application, i see a report viewer.

    Why is the reportviewer missing from the toolbox?

    Thanks.

    Hello Jagat,

    In VS2010 by default the Windows Forms app template uses .NET Framework 4 Client Profile as target framework. However as noted in the System requirements page and Known limitations of Telerik Reporting sticky thread, .NET Framework 4 Client Profile is not supported by Telerik Reporting. You should change the target framework to .NET 4 Framework (not client profile) and would be able to see the report viewer when you have a windows form opened in the VS designer.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Steve,

    I am using VS2008.
    VS2010 is needed for .Net framework 4.0

    So,  for using report viewer  in a winforms application i need to have VS2010?

    Thanks

    Hi Jagat,

    I assumed you are using VS2010 since this is a common question when one adds a Winforms app and also the fact that you see the web report viewer for web application, which means that the reporting Toolbox items have installed correctly.
    Can you confirm that you have a windows form opened in the VS designer when looking for the report viewer in the Toolbox? If so and the viewer is still not available, choose Reset Toolbox from the context menu of Visual Studio Toolbox and let us know how it goes.

    All the best,

    Hello,

    i'm using VS 2010 with the .NET Framework 4.0 and i miss in my toolbox the reportviewer respectively the Telerik Report Q1 2012 Field. I tried the step to reset my toolbox, but it didn't work. 

    Edit: And i'm in the .NET 4 Framework (not client profile). When i try an application created with Q3 2011 (by a friend), it works, but i cant create an own application (winforms)...

    Thanks.

    Hello Thomas,

    Which report viewer are you using? Note that the WPF report viewer is not automatically added to Toolbox and you should follow the steps from the How to: Add report viewer to a WPF application help article.
    If you do not see a reporting toolbox when you have opened a report in the Report Designer, then please run Telerik Reporting installer from command prompt with logging information enabled:

    msiexec /i path_to\Telerik_Reporting_Q1_2011_DEV.msi -l*xv install.log

    and attach the log file to a support ticket with information about your problem.

    Kind regards,
    Steve

    Hello Aseman,

    If you want to include the WinForms Report Viewer in a WinForms application, you also need to install Telerik Reporting. You can get 30 days of a free trial. For more information about adding the viewer, visit How to: Add report viewer to a Windows Forms' .NET Framework project article.

    Once you install Telerik Reporting you can check our WinForms demo which can be found at:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Progress\Telerik Reporting <Version>\Examples\CSharp

    Regards,
    Neli
    Progress Telerik
