I am a new user to OxyPlot and tried to create an WinForms example in VS2012 Professional. I followed the steps to add OxyPlot to the VS designer toolbox but I get the following error when I add OxyPlot.WindowForms.dll:

There are no components in 'xxx\OxyPlot.WindowsForms.dll' that can be placed on the toolbox.

For me its the same. I'm using Oxyplot in VS 2012 Express and can't insert the plot control for Windows Forms. What should i do?

Make sure that you have the OxyPlot.dll assembly in the same assembly as the OxyPlot.WindowsForms.dll.

I will try to add OxyPlot.dll to the "OxyPlot WindowsForms" nuget package, but I am not sure if this is a good idea (the OxyPlot.dll assembly is already referenced by the OxyPlot Core nuget package)...

I don't understand how you do that! Please give more details.
Thx.
