    Hi everyone.

    I recently moved to VC++ and I noticed that most of the controls of my toolbox are grayed.

    I cannot add them ad design time, i need to create them by code at runtime.

    but since designing the app at runtime kinda sux :p
    i want to know how to make the controls available at design time too.

    here is a shot of my toolbox

    Hope i get some help here :D

    Are you developing with VC++.NET managed code or just plain C++ or MFC or what? This is very odd, usually when you can't drop a control onto the designer, the controls just don't appear.

    Judging from the screenshots, you are using a a special xp skin. Try changing the skins and see if that makes it visible.
    EDIT: You've got a designer window open up and not a code window, correct?

    yea, its the form. but after searching a lot more on google, I think that the reason those controls arent available is bkoz im using Native C++, while the controls are .NET not too sure tho.
