What is a software component? Software components or UI controls are pre-built software libraries or code libraries that you can use in your software application to quickly add new functionality. When you use a software component previously written by yourself, you are reusing your own code and saving time, plus you gain the benefits of using a modular approach to your software design or architecture, that will hopefully give you other quality and efficiency benefits.
When you use a software component or UI control pre-written by an expert in that area or field of study, you are not only saving time and effort, you are also adding high quality functionality to your application - fast. Features that were difficult for you to code, as you do not have the pre-requisite skills or knowledge, can now be easily added. With software components you can rapidly add new functions to your app and at the same time hit your project deadlines or gain time to market for a new product! Plus, if you are using a pre-built software component written by an industry expert, you may also gain in quality and performance terms as well.
