    Resolved [RESOLVED] Toolbox does not have a Tablix control for an RDLC report

    I have installed the Microsoft.ReportingServices.ReportViewerControl.Winforms v150.1440.0 in my project using the NuGet package manager.

    I have created a report (Windows Form) and placed a ReportViewer control from the Toolbox on the report's surface. Intellisense shows it is a ReportViewer version 15.0.0.0 .Net Component.

    I cannot find the Tablix control in the Toolbox.

    What do I need to do to get the Tablix control into the Toolbox?

    Thanks for the tutorial link.

    Step #3 in the tutorial branches to either a server-based report or a local report (mine will be a local report).

    After the control is added to the form, the ReportViewer Tasks smart tag appears and prompts you to select a report.
    The smart tag on my ReportViewer control does not look like the one in the tutorial. Mine does does not include the "Design a new report" option.

    Is there something else that I need to do to get the Tablix control in my Toolbox?

    I believe what you need to do is under "Choose Report", select your local report in your application.

    It’s been a while since I last built a project that included a ReportViewer. I am trying to remember all the steps that I followed back then.

    Do I need to add a new report, so that I can choose it with the ReportViewer’s smart tag?

    My VS2019 Community program does not have a “Report” in the “Add new...” menu. I vaguely remember “Add -> New Item -> Reporting -> Report -> Report1.rdlc” on prior projects.

    Racking my brain on this...

    I used to use a paid version of VS (2010?). A few years ago I began using VS Community. I don’t think I have ever built a report with the ReportViewer and VS Community 2019.

    I found this link.

    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Fo...lstudiogeneral

    I followed the instructions in the link. I vaguely remember having to do these steps with my paid version of VS.

    After the VSIX Installer finished installing the Microsoft RDLC Report Designer, I now have a “Report” in the “Add new...” menu.

    This has been another reminder of how complicated VS can be. I wish Microsoft would include the Microsoft RDLC Report Designer in the “standard” installation of the program.

    Building a report is complicated enough even after you have to figure out how to just get the Microsoft RDLC Report Designer installed! Grrr…
