I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but I have spent a couple hours searching the internet and just can't figure out how to add a 3rd party control to the VS toolbox so that I can use it in my app. I'm using VS 2019 on Window 10.

What I have tried:

I've tried dragging it with File Manager into the toolbox, but that did nothing. Do I need to turnoff some security restriction? Is there a hidden menu within VS? Do I need to register it? If so, how? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Add a reference to it the .DLL in the library.

Right-click the References item in Solution Explorer and click "Add Reference". In the window that shows up, click Browse on the left and go find the .DLL(s) that hold the controls you want to use.
