When we used to install Telerik manually the toolbox in Visual Studio would be filled with the newest controls. Using the Telerik online nuget packages however don't do the same. How do I get the toolbox to be filled after referencing Telerik via the use of a nuget package?

Thank you for contacting us.
When using Telerik UI for WinForms via NuGet package the only way of adding the assemblies to the Visual Studio Toolbox is manually, through the Choose Items option.
Don't hesitate to contact us if you need any further assistance.
I actually did try this before I created this post. I browsed to the assemblies that were brought down to my packages directories after referencing the nuget packages. Unfortunately I get the "there are no components … that can be placed on the toolbox" message. In the attached message I was trying to add one of the Themes DLLs.

I followed your steps and was able to reproduce the problem you are experiencing. The error message is presented as the themes assemblies does not exist in the GAC. I would suggest to add them using the gacutil tool: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/tools/gacutil-exe-gac-tool. Note the themes depend on Telerik.WinControls and TelerikCommon assemblies and they should exist in the GAC as well.
Let me know if any questions arise.
