Add DataGrid to the Toolbox in Visual Studio 2005

Some time ago I was using DataGrid to develop the  WEb-applications (C#, Visual Studio 2003).
I know that VS2005 includes a Wizard which allows to convert a project from 2003 to 2005.
I do not see a DataGrid in the toolbox of VS2005. I believe the DataGrid has been replaced with GridView in VS2005. I like DataGrid from VS2003.  Is it possible to add DataGrid (from VS2003)
to the Toolbox in Visual Studio 2005?

Hi niceguy971;

You can add controls to the toolbox that are not currently load such as the DataGrid by doing the following:

1. Open the Toolbox and right click on the tab where you want to place the DataGrid control on.
2. From the context menu select and click on "Choose Items..."
3. When the "Choose Toolbox Items" dialog box opens, select the tab ".Net Framework Components"
4. All the controls with check marks next to them are already in the Toolbox, all the others are not.
5. Scroll down till you find the DataGrid control and click on the check box to place a check mark next to it.
6. Click on the OK button and the DataGrid control should now be in the toolbox.
