Toolbox 

The Toolbox displays icons for items that you can add to Visual Studio projects. The Toolbox is available from the View menu. You can dock the Toolbox and either leave it pinned open or set it to Auto Hide.

Each Toolbox icon can be dragged and dropped onto a design view surface or copied and pasted into a code editor within the Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE). Either action adds the fundamental code to create an instance of the Toolbox item in the active project file.

NoteNote

The dialog boxes and menu commands you see might differ from those described in Help depending on your active settings or edition. To change your settings, choose Import and Export Settings on the Tools menu. For more information, see Visual Studio Settings.
