How can I make it show up in Toolbox so I can use it in the Designer.

I have System.Windows.Forms reference in the project
From Tools/Choose Toolbox Item, I have checked mark on the NumericUpDown under '.Net Framework Components' tab.

in the toolbox, right click and click on "choose items"
under .NET Framework Component tab, Check the box next to "NumericUpDown" and click OK.

I try to remove the installation as well as the 'Visual Studio 2008' project in 'My Document'. After installation I try to reset the toolbox by right click tool box and select 'Reset toolbox'


Still does not work. The 'NumericUpDown' under 'Common Controls' is disable.  Attached a image to indicate it.

> NumericUpDown control does not appear in the toolbox

You question states "Does Not appear" while the controls existe but GRAYED OUT.
Most of your controls are Grayed out, This usually happens when your active window is not a form designer (source code or other). Also can happen when you are debugging a running application.

Sorry for misleading you. It appears only after I choose 'Show All' when I right click on the toobox.
Now I am creating WPF Application. Are you saying WPF does not support NumericUpDown
