Problem with installation in VS2005

Problem with installation in VS2005

Postby RJordan » Wed 08 Nov 2006 09:04

In VS2003 after the setup there is a component panel 'MySqlDirect'. In VS 2005 is does not appear. The CoreLab.MySQL is in the GAC and in the list of all components they are checked. Any idea?
Thanks for help.

Are you in a Designer view (or Component Designer view in case of web projects)?

OK, thanks. Is there any reason that I need to change to desiger view page? Other non visual components (not all) can be placed on the (web)form. Is it possible to do this with the mysql components too?

In winform designer the non visual components are shown at a panel at the bottom, not so in the web form designer. Designed by Microsoft...?

The MySql components create a InitializeComponent() methode that is not called automatic. I have to call it manuel in a Page_Init method?

If you need buttons, labels, etc., you should switch to the Designer view.

That's right, but why is it on a separte view page? Other non visual components are placed on the form in Designer View too. Why not the MySQL components. Maybe there is a reason...?

Sorry for the many question, I just upgrade to VS2005 und everything is a bit different. But many Thanks for your support.

Those components (visible in the Designer view) are web components. They are not components in the ordinary sense. For example, if you use Visual Web Developer (VWD) Studio, you would never see MySQLDirect .NET components, because VWD doesn't support components at all.

Don't you use Visual Web Developer Studio?
