No Grid Control in Toolbox


Our company has just recently purchased the Essential Studio Enterprise edition (

In your documentation, Create your first grid in ASP.NET (http://help.syncfusion.com/web), there is a Grid control listed in the toolbox. In the Toolbox in Visual Studio 2012 I can only see the GridGroupingControl.

I have run the Toolbox Installer twice to ensure it wasn't missed.

Could you please advise how to make the Grid control available through Visual Studio 2012?

Kind Regards

Hi Christian,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

From your update, it seems that you have checked the grid control in ASP.NET(Classic) platform. But we have provided the grid control in ASP.NET platform.

We would like to let you know that, we have marked the previous ASP.NET controls (i.e., ASP.NET components offered before version) as ASP.NET(Classic) components. Now we have provided newer set of controls powered by Essential JavaScript as ASP.NET Controls from version. The newer version provides several advantages over classic edition including purely client side rendered HTML5/JavaScript controls, offers better performance and provides better support for touch interactivity.

If you have already install the ASP.NET platform, please refer the below help link for how to add grid control in ASP.NET platform.


If the Syncfusion ASP.NET setup has not been installed in your machine, you can download the corresponding version(12.3) setup by logging into your Syncfusion support in direct-trac and going to 'Downloads' page from the Direct Trac customer dashboard.
