Using the ASP.NET 4.5 Chart Control

I have read the document that describes how to use the ASP.NET 4.5 Chart Control

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd489237.aspx 

The Chart control was in the tool box.  

If you cannot see the Chart control in the Toolbox, right click in the Toolbox, select Choose Items, and then select the following namespaces in the .NET Framekwork Components tab:

The following files are on my hard drive:
¿System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting


¿System.Windows.Forms.DataVisualization.Charting

I added properties as follows:

         <asp:SqlDataSource ID="dscWatchListChart" runat="server"
         ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:StockSelectSQLConnectionString %>"
         
         SelectCommand="SELECT QuoteDate, ClosePrice,
            CASE  
                    WHEN TradeVolume &lt; 200 THEN 1
                ELSE ROUND(Log10(TradeVolume/100)/Log10(2),1)
            END  
            AS TradeVolume, MovingPriceAvg,MovingVolAvg  
            FROM StockHist
              WHERE SymbolID=0 AND QuoteDate &gt;= '2009-01-02'
              AND QuoteDate &lt;= '2009-02-05'
            ORDER BY QuoteDate " 
         SelectCommandType="Text" > 
   
    </asp:SqlDataSource>

There is only one error:

Error      1      The type or namespace name 'DataVisualization' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web.UI' (are you missing an assembly reference?)      C:\Users\Dovberman\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\StockPro\WebApplication1\BestPicks.aspx.designer.cs      220      41      StockPro

Error Line:
protected global::System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting.Chart ChtStock;

What do you suggest?

System.Web.UI.DataVisualization.Charting is not being recognized. Do I need a namespace declaration?

Thanks,

Several properties have been added to VS 2012.  If you open a VS2008 solution in VS 2012, the software will attempt to upgrade the project.  There may be errors due to compatibility between the two versions.

Some of the errors will be difficult to locate.
You will sometimes need to create a new page and add small sections of code from the old 2008 page until the error information is displayed. Then add additional code sections until all errors are revealed and corrected.

This did not help.

I started a new project which had only one page.  The one page contained only the chart control without any additional properties specified.

If this is a common problem, please give me a reference.

Thanks,
