Article Information 

Article relates to the VIBlend Controls for WPF package. 

How To 

Add VIBlend Controls for WPF to the VS Toolbox? 

Solution 

VIBlend Controls for WPF are automatically added to Visual Studio 2010 and Visual Studio 2008 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 WPF application. 

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

4. Type VIBlend and press Enter.

5. Expand the VIBlend tab and right click on the expanded area. 

6. Click on the ‘Choose Items…’ menu item. 

7. Click on the WPF Components tab. 

8. Click the ‘Browse’ button and navigate to the VIBlend assemblies. Add the VIBlend.WPF.DataGrid.dll, VIBlend.WPF.Utilities.dl, VIBlend.WPF.Editors.dll, VIBlend.WPF.NavigationPanes.dll if you are using VS2010 or add the VIBlend.WPF3.5.DataGrid.dll, VIBlend.WPF3.5.Utilities.dl, VIBlend.WPF3.5.Editors.dll, VIBlend.WPF3.5.NavigationPanes.dll if you are using VS2008. As a result, the controls should appear under the VIBlend tab. 

9. Reference to the VIBlend.WPF.Utilities or VIBlend.WPF3.5.Utilities(in case of VS2008) is necessary to run the application. This reference is automatically added when you drag and drop a control into your Window. 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.
