Toolbox entries

Essential HTMLUI places the following control into your Visual Studio .NET toolbox, from where you can drag each control onto a form and start working with it.

  • HTMLUIControl


While deploying an application that references a Syncfusion Essential HTMLUI assembly, the following dependencies must be included in the distribution.

Windows Forms – HTMLUI

  • Syncfusion.Shared.Base.dll
  • Syncfusion.Shared.Windows.dll
  • Syncfusion.HTMLUI.Base.dll
  • Syncfusion.HTMLUI.Windows.dll
  • Syncfusion.Scripting.Base.dll
  • Syncfusion.MIME.Base.dll

Syncfusion.HTMLUI.Base.dll depends on Syncfusion.MIME.Base.dll. So this needs to be included in the deployment of any application which uses HTMLUI.
