Adding a Crystal Reports Viewer to a form: C# ok, VB.NET not ok!

Hi, everybody

I am starting to learn Crystal Report for Visual Studio.

I am doing a tiny Windows Form project to display a Crystal Report on a form.

When I work in C#:

I can see the Crystal Report Viewer in the Toolbox, and I can add it to the form.

When I work in VB.NET:

I cannot see the Crystal Report Viewer in the Toolbox.

See the attached pictures which illustrate my problem.

How can I make the Crystal Report Viewer appear in the toolbox (VB.NET)?





Hi, don't worry. I found the answer.

We should do like this:

In Visual Studio:

New Project -> Visual Basic -> Reporting -> Crystal Reports Application

Then, we get the Crystal Reports Viewer in the toolbox!

Hope this will help other people!
