ReportViewer DocumentMap

Why is the documentmap button not showing up on the reportviewer control? I already set ShowDocumentMapButton to true.

The DocumentMap actually works. I can open/close it by right clicking on the report and select document map. But the button does not appear on the toolbar.
try to put this line when you refresh your report
rptviewerReports.ShowDocumentMapButton = True

No, it is still not showing up.
are you in .NET framework 4.0?

if yes, you need to check this link (read "Obsolete properties" section")

"The following properties are obsolete because the prompt area and document map are no longer controlled by buttons on the toolbar: ShowPromptAreaButton and ShowDocumentMapButton. The following Web server control properties are obsolete because the ReportViewer control no longer uses pressed buttons: ToolBarItemPressedBorderStyle, ToolBarItemPressedBorderColor, ToolBarItemPressedBorderWidth, and ToolBarItemPressedHoverBackColor.
