I've just developped in Visual Studio 2008 a kind of grid custom control which has a public function that returns a crystal report of its cells contents.

It does work well when I use it in the same vb solution, but when I try to add this control to other projects toolbox, I get an error "Creating ToolBox Item of type: CrystalDecisions.VSDesigner.ReportToolBoxItem, CrystalDecisions.VSDesigner".

The CrystalReport is defined inside the custom control project as an embedded resource (compilation options).

Any idea to solvent this problem?

Goto project menu and add reference of

CrystalDecisions.VSDesigner.ReportToolBoxItem, CrystalDecisions.VSDesigner.

I am sure it will work.

Thanks for the answer.

I've found and added the "CrystalDecisions.VSDesigner" reference, but not the "CrystalDecisions.VSDesigner.ReportToolBoxItem" one...

It still doesn't work.
