    Installing into Microsoft Visual Studio

    Typically the FlyTreeView control installation for Visual Studio does not require any additional steps. But if FlyTreeView and FlyContextMenu do not appear in the toolbox it may be required to manually reinstall the controls into IDE toolbox. To accomplish this, please use the method described below for Visual Web Developer Express.

    Installing into Microsoft Visual Web Developer Express

    Installation process for Visual Web Developer requires FlyTreeView and FlyContextMenu to be installed into the Toolbox manually.

    To achieve this, please make use of the following steps:

    1. Make sure you have control assembly in the installation folder of FlyTreeView control. The default location is C:\Program Files\9Rays.Net\FlyTreeView for ASP.NET\bin folder. But it may be customized during the installation process.
    2. Open your Visual Web Developer environment.
    3. Expand the Toolbox window.
    4. Right-click the Toolbox. Select Add Tab menu item.
    5. Type in 9Rays.Net Controls tab name and press Enter.
    6. Again right-click Toolbox and select Choose Items menu item.
    7. In the .NET Framework Components tab check the FlyTreeView and FlyContextMenu items, if present. Otherwise, click Browse button and select control assembly DLL file from the control installation path. That is C:\Program Files\9Rays.Net\FlyTreeView for ASP.NET\bin\NineRays.WebControls.FlyTreeView.dll by default.
    The FlyTreeView and FlyContextMenu should appear in the Toolbox.

    Now you're ready to use FlyTreeView control in your applications.
