No components at all in IDE

Post by RSC » Tue 12 Aug 2008 13:48


I'm using OraDirect .NET mobile and VS2008.
I don't see any components at all in de IDE Toolbox.
In the docs there is a topic about this:

> No components can be found in the toolbox.
> This can happen if the installation encountered some problems. You can
> add the components to toolbox manually. This procedure is described in
> the Installation article in the documentation. Note that Microsoft Web
> Developer 2005 Express edition does not allow to work with toolbox at all.

But i can't find it to repair the Toolbox.
I've tried to un-install Oradirect .NET and re-install with no succes.
What can i do now?

Kind regards,

To add components manually you should right-click on your Visual Studio Toolbox and select the "Choose Items" option. Then select all CoreLab visual components you need (OracleConnection, OracleDataTable and so on).

Items in Toolbox Greyed out

Post by saponder » Fri 19 Sep 2008 17:37

I had the same problem in VS2008 with the tool box, after I added the components to the toolbox, the tab would not show up, I selected show all and then it is visible but all of the components are greyed out, no matter what kind of project I am working on or version of .net.

I am trying to build an application that will run on Windows Mobile 5.0 and VS2008 only shows "Smart Device" in its templates and does not allow selection of version of .net

This is a known problem with installation. It arises when OraDirect .NET Mobile Edition was reinstalled. Please go to Registry editor and set the following value to 1

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Devart\OraDirect Mobile\FirstLoad9.0.

Devart components at the moment support mobile development only with .NET Framework 2.0, not with 3.0 and 3.5 in design time. But you can use our components in run time without any limitations.
