The Toolbox appears by default in the Visual Studio integrated development environment; if you need to display the Toolbox, select Toolbox from the View menu.

Running the Data Source Configuration Wizard will automatically create and configure most data items. For more information, see Creating Data Applications with Visual Studio.

To go directly to the .NET Framework reference page for a component, press F1 on the item in the Toolbox or on the component item in the tray of the designer.
