Microsoft Visual Studio (MS Visual Studio) allows Visual Studio programmers to create Windows applications for their end users fast. Visual Studio developers can extend the standard functionality available inside the Visual Studio IDE with a variety of Visual Studio add-ins and Visual Studio tools. The extensibility of Visual Studio software is one of the main reasons it has proved to be so popular with developers, as Visual Studio software engineers can find Visual Studio downloads from other companies or other developers to act as a Visual Studio extension to their Visual Studio IDE.
The versatility of Visual Studio also extends to various forms of Visual Studio software components. Visual Studio controls can be used to create feature rich Visual Studio user interfaces on forms and Web pages for Visual Studio apps. These Visual Studio UI controls are augmented by non-visual Visual Studio components or Visual Studio libraries that can help a developer add many hidden features in Visual Studio applications running in the background. These non-visual components are commonly available as a Visual C++ library, Visual C++ Class library, Visual Basic library, Visual Basic Class library or as a Visual Basic custom control or ActiveX/OCX component.
An example of a visual Visual Studio control is Janus GridEx, a Visual Basic UI control that allows you to create an MS Outlook style or look and feel to your latest Visual Basic project. A non-visual Visual Basic component example is a Visual Basic compatible product that allows you to create and output files in different formats, such as: PDF, XPS, PostScript, RTF, HTML, XML to help solve file conversion and document storage needs.
Other examples of a visual Visual Studio control is BCGControlBar Professional, a Visual C++ Class Library that allows you to create an MS Office Ribbon style or look and feel to your latest Visual C++ project. A non-visual Visual C++ Class Library component example is a Visual C++ compatible product call IP*Works! C++ Edition that allows you to send emails via SMTP and POP or to transfer files reliably using HTTP or FTP Internet protocols from within your Visual C++ program.
The Visual Studio software products listed in this Visual Studio product gallery will allow you to save a lot of time and effort in creating your new Visual Studio app. Whether you are looking for a Visual Studio plug-in or Visual Studio utility, or you are looking for a Visual Studio control or a Visual Studio component, you will be able to find a wide variety of Visual Studio tools to help you finish your project faster.
