Old controls disappear on toolbox at 2.0

Guest

We are going to update our ASP.NET 1.1 based applications to 2.0. After I
installed VS Web Express, I immediately find the old web server controls,
such as DataGrid and data object (adapter, connection, command…) are
disappeared from toolbox.

I still can type asp:datagrid on aspx page to get DataGrid back, but the
nice design stage features are gone. You can not edit columns at design stage
through a dialog.

Is the old 1.1 server controls DLL still there? Is there someway to add old
1.1 controls back to toolbox? Are the design stage features still available
for old stuff?

I know Microsoft discourages people to use old 1.1 stuff. But the reality is
that we can not switch it at middle of development. Thanks for any help.

Shaw,

Right click on the toolbox area you would like to add the controls to and
select "Choose Controls" from the menu that appears. Then on the .NET tab in
the window that opens select the checkbox on any control you would like to
add to the toolbox.

I suggest adding a new toolbar area to keep the old controls in first: Right
click in the toolbox and select "Add Tab" from the menu.

Thanks Peter. Do you know which DLL should be added to Toolbox, and in what
directory I can find?

Sorry to ask those basic question. Since the old web controls are default in
1.1, I never deed to add. Now I have trouble to find them.
Thanks again.

Shaw,
the "old" guys are still around, you just need to add them back to the
Toolbox if you want them.
