Visual Studio 2012 > SharePoint > ToolBox > Chart Control Object

Hi,

When I fire up VS 2012 > New > Project > SharePoint 2010 project  ( farm solution ) and add  new  item (either Visual Web Part or Web Part ), the Chart Control Object under Toolbox >Data is greyed out.

I have under Reference Manager, checked System.Web.DataVisualisation.

How can I activate this Chart control object?

Thank you for your help.

If you need the chart in the toolbox, you can drag the dll from C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Chart Controls\Assemblies (by default), to the toolbox. Or right click on the toolbar, "Choose items..."

Thank you for the response. It did not work. I noticed when I select ASP.NET Web Forms Application the Chart icon is activated, but when I select SharePoint 2010 > Visual Web Part or Web Part the Chart icon remains greyed out.

Are there other considerations I may have missed?
