Menu options in VisualStudio 2012 greyed out

Post by phillipsj » Fri 21 Dec 2012 18:41

Our Toolbox in Visual studio (VIEW => TOOLBOX)
has all the stuff 'greyed out'
I believe that I should be able to drag and drop DB "stuff" (OracleDataTable, Alerts, etc.) into code.

We are still on the trial download of 7.3. We have just purchased a Professional version, but do not yet have the key.

There are some comments about not allowed to use them and being on a Form Designer.

Is this a configuration/licensing issue or am I not following a documented procedure?

Thanks,

Jack

The Devart components are available in the Toolbox for two types of projects:
1. WinForms (on a Form Designer) - OracleConnection, OracleCommand, OracleDataTable, etc.
2. ASP.NET Web Application/Web Site (on a Page Designer) - OracleDataSource, DbLinkDataSource.

There is no possibility of drag&drop-ing components into code by design.
