Microsoft Visual Basic 2008 (MS VB 2008) allows Visual Basic programmers to create Windows applications for their end users fast. Visual Basic developers can extend the standard functionality available inside the Visual Basic 2008 IDE with a variety of VB 2008 add-ins and VB 2008 tools. The extensibility of Visual Basic software is one of the main reasons it has proved to be so popular with .NET developers, as Visual Basic software engineers can find VB 2008 downloads from other companies or other developers to act as a VB extension to their Visual Basic 2008 IDE.
The versatility of Visual Basic also extends to various forms of Visual Basic 2008 compatible software components.

These Visual Basic UI controls are augmented by non-visual Visual Basic 2008 components that can help a developer add many hidden features to Visual Basic 2008 applications running in the background. These non-visual components are commonly available as a VB 2008 library, Visual Basic 2008 Class library or as a Visual Basic 2008 component.
An example of a visual VB 2008 ASP.NET control is ASPxGridView and Editors Suite by DevExpress, a VB 2008 compatible grid control for ASP.NET allowing you to adding the Outlook style or look and feel to your latest Visual Basic 2008 ASP.NET project.
