This tab displays a list of ASP.NET server controls that you can add to ASP.NET Web pages. This tab is available in both Design view and Source view.
You can also create HTML server controls on your Web Forms pages by adding elements from the HTML tab of the Toolbox and then converting them to controls. For information on the difference between these controls, see Introduction to ASP.NET Server Controls.
To access the Standard tab in the Toolbox
In Microsoft Visual Web Developer, click View, and then click Toolbox.
Alternatively, you can press CTRL+ALT+X.
In the Toolbox, click the plus sign (+) next to the Standard menu item.
This expands the list of standard tools.
The Toolbox is displayed by default on the left side of the Visual Web Developer window, but you can move it by dragging the title bar.
To restore the Toolbox to its original location
Right-click the title bar and select Dockable.
This enables the Toolbox to become part of the Visual Web Developer design surface.
Click the title bar, and begin to drag it in order to display the destination arrows.
Drag the title bar so that your mouse is positioned over the destination arrow that points left, and release the mouse button.
