What is a DLL? A DLL, short for Dynamic Link Library, is a library that contains both code and data that can be used as a shared DLL or resource DLL by more than one program or application at the same time. Using Windows DLLs or DLL libraries allows the developer to make more efficient use of memory and disk space, as well as allowing for a more modular approach to the application design that encourages componentization and code re-use.
A DLL library can be used as a software component to add functionality to your application or project, without the need to spend the time to write all of the code yourself. You will find .NET DLL products and C# DLL products here for a variety of common tasks that are both visual and non-visual.
For example you will find dynamic DLL products that are datagrid DLLs that enable you to provide data grids or to present datatables in your app. Or if you need full calc engine functionality there are spreadsheet DLLs available too. If you are looking for charting DLLs or graphing DLLs, you will find several products here to include in your application to draw pie-charts, bar charts, line graphs etc.
Other visual DLL libraries listed here include: a DLL editor for text editing and word processing, calendar DLLs for planning and scheduling, Computer Aided Design or CAD DLLs, image processing DLLs and image conversion DLLs and DLL libraries for document imaging & scanning, OCR DLLs for optical character recognition projects, as well as complex DLLs for multi-media and video compression tasks, or a simple dynamic DLL to display a barcode.
You will also find non-visual dynamic DLL products, that work in the background to add functionality to your your application, such as sending and receiving emails via SMTP or POP or transferring files via FTP or HTTP over the Internet. Or non-visual data reporting DLLs to create daily management reports or scheduled MIS reports overnight or to create PDF files in batch mode using a PDF DLL library to carry out the file format and conversion task for you.
You will also find similar C++ DLL or CPP DLL products or DLL libraries for your Visual C++ application or the equivalent Borland library for your BC++ project code.
Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 (MS VB 2005) 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 2005 IDE with a variety of VB 2005 add-ins and VB 2005 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 2005 downloads from other companies or other developers to act as a VB extension to their Visual Basic 2005 IDE.
The versatility of Visual Basic also extends to various forms of Visual Basic 2005 compatible software components. VB 2005 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 2005 components that can help a developer add many hidden features to Visual Basic 2005 applications running in the background. These non-visual components are commonly available as a VB 2005 library, Visual Basic 2005 Class library or as a Visual Basic 2005 component.
An example of a visual VB 2005 control is TeeChart for .NET, a VB 2005 ASP.NET control and a VB 2005 WinForm control enabling you to add complex VB charting and VB graphing functionality to your latest Visual Basic 2005 project. A non-visual Visual Basic 2005 component example is a Visual Basic 2005 .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 2005 software products listed in this Visual Basic 2005 product gallery will allow you to save a lot of time and effort in creating your new Visual Basic 2005 app. Whether you are looking for a Visual Basic 2005 plug-in or Visual Basic 2005 utility, or you are looking for a VB 2005 control or a VB 2005 component, you will be able to find a wide variety of Visual Basic 2005 tools to help you finish your project faster. Many of the products listed here have free Visual Basic 2005 trials available as a VB 2005 download from our Visual Basic 2005 marketplace.
We also have other Visual Basic product galleries for: Visual Basic 2010, Visual Basic 2008, Visual Basic .NET and Visual Basic compatible products.
