The name "ColorBox" does not exist in the namespace


Somehow the ColorBox control can't be loaded in the designer view under Visual Studio 2013.
Don't know if more people are experiencing this problem.

The strange thing is that the control does work when I compile the project.

We've tested the ColorBox control in Visual Studio 2013 and it is loading perfectly under designer view.

Can you please provide more details to figure out what is the issue at your end or you can try rebuilding the solution and see if it works.

I found that if I take the source code and compile the colorbox.dll my self, all is fine. If I then switch out the reference from my own dll to the compiled version download directly from CodePlex it fails again.

So now I can use the ColorBox without problems.
Thx for the awesome work.

I found what the original problem with the downloaded dll was.

Apperently it had to do with the security settings, blocking the file.
Properties --> Unlock solved this problem for me.
