I successfully upgraded to VS 2008 SP1 and ASP.NET SP1.

Then I downloaded and installed the MS Chart for ASP.NET.

The chart control does not appear in the toolbox. It does not appear in the ToolBox - Choose Items list.
I also copied the
System.Web.DataVisualization.Design.dll and System.Web.DataVisualization.dll ito the project Bin folder.

What do I need to do to have the chart control does not appear in the toolbox?

    I set a reference to the System.Web.DataVisualization.dll

    Then it appeared in the ToolBox - Choose Items list.

    Thanks for the link for additional examples. This will be a big help.
