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. VB 2008 controls can be used to create feature rich Visual Basic user interfaces on forms and Web pages for Visual Basic apps. 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. A non-visual Visual Basic 2008 component example is a Visual Basic 2008 .NET Class called IP*Works! that allows you to enable functions such as: sending email, transferring files, managing networks, browsing the web, consuming web services using Internet protocols such as: FTP, HTTP, SMTP, POP, IMAP, LDAP, DNS, RSS, SMS, Jabber, SOAP, WebDav, RAS, XML and more.
The VB 2008 software products listed in this Visual Basic 2008 product gallery will allow you to save a lot of time and effort in creating your new Visual Basic 2008 app. Whether you are looking for a Visual Basic 2008 plug-in or Visual Basic 2008 utility, or you are looking for a VB 2008 control or a VB 2008 component, you will be able to find a wide variety of Visual Basic 2008 tools to help you finish your project faster. Many of the products listed here have free Visual Basic 2008 trials available as a VB 2008 download from our Visual Basic 2008 marketplace.

Wow, we purchased our 2nd Aspose product last month (Cells for .NET). It allowed us to do some things with a massive reporting system that publishes automatically to a client website that would have taken us weeks to develop ourselves. This reporting system creates a very complex and large set of spreadsheets that then feed a 100+ PPT slide deck. Aspose came through for us again!
Very quick and simple to implement, and excellent on line tutorial. One of the most painless components I have ever had to use
