The ReportViewer control in VS 2017 is not displayed


I am working with Visual Studio 2017. Add a ReportViewer control to a form and it is not shown on the form itself.

I see that the solution adds the necessary references, the control is seen in the outline of the document and I add a lower bar I imagine that to control the reports it shows, but the control itself in the form remains absent.

And I tried adding the control from extensions and updates, adding the Microsoft RDLC report designer. Also from the NuGet package manager adding Microsoft.ReportingServices.ReportViewerControl.Winforms and then adding your library to the project but in both cases the result is the same, the control is not displayed.

There are already some questions created related to this, however none has a solution yet, maybe it was necessary to be more explicit. Does anyone have any idea how to fix it?

I include this image showing that the control is available in the IDE.

I include the view of elements to add in the toolbox.

  • Install the extension for Visual Studio 2017
    Microsoft Rdlc Report Designer for Visual Studio

  • Install the libraries in your project
    Microsoft.ReportingServices .ReportViewerControl.Winforms

  • Add the library reference downloadable by NuGet to Toolbox


    Now select the downloadable library by NuGet

    Ready! Just select and drag to your form!
