How To 

Add VIBlend Controls for Silverlight to the VS Toolbox? 


VIBlend Controls for Silverlight are automatically added to Visual Studio 2010 Toolbox during the installation process. 

However, if they do not appear in the toolbox after the installation, you can do this manually:  

1. Run a new Visual Studio instance. 

2. Create a new Silverlight application. 

3. Right Click on the Toolbox and click the “Add Tab” menu item. 

4. Type VIBlend and press Enter.

8. Click the ‘Browse’ button and navigate to the VIBlend assemblies. Add the VIBlend.Silverlight.DataGrid.dll, VIBlend. Silverlight.Utilities.dl, VIBlend. Silverlight.Editors.dll, VIBlend. Silverlight.NavigationPanes.dll, VIBlend.Silverlight.Menu, VIBlend.Silverlight.TreeView, VIBlend.Silverlight.Extensions. As a result the VIBlend tab is filled with the VIBlend Controls. 

9. Reference to the VIBlend.Silverlight.Utilities is necessary to run the application. This reference is automatically added when you drag and drop a control into your Page. However, you can also manually add them by right clicking on the ‘Reference’ tree node in the Solution Explorer and then clicking on the ‘Add Reference’ context menu item.
