The Toolbox is used to insert controls on a form.

The Toolbox

To open the Toolbox, click View, and then click Toolbox, or click the Toolbox button on the toolbar. To select a specific tool, click the corresponding icon in the Toolbox. You use the Pointer tool to select controls on a form in Form Designer. If you select any of the other tools, the cursor changes from a selection tool to an insertion tool. Usually, after you insert a control, you must select the control again in the Toolbox before inserting the next control. However, the Lock tool maintains the current control selection and you can continue inserting controls of the same type without having to select the control again in the Toolbox. If the Add Label tool is also selected, all the controls that you add to the form are given a label when you insert them.
