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.
In this commercial software component gallery you will find over 1,700 components or controls for your next software project that have been written by industry experts who are specialists in their field. So whether you are looking for software ActiveX controls for a mature VB project now under maintenance or for .Net controls, ASP controls or a C# component for a more up to date .NET Framework project or Web site built using ASP then you have come to the best commercial grade software component marketplace in the world.
As well as an ActiveX component product zone and a comprehensive .Net components product listing full of .NET datagrids, .NET chart and other .NET UI control products, you will also find product galleries full of Delphi controls (VCLs). Plus there are VB & VC++ class libraries, DLL object based products and even some Static Link Library products too.

Microsoft Visual Basic (MS Visual Basic) 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 IDE with a variety of Visual Basic add-ins and Visual Basic tools. The extensibility of Visual Basic software is one of the main reasons it has proved to be so popular with developers, as Visual Basic software engineers can find Visual Basic downloads from other companies or other developers to act as a Visual Basic extension to their Visual Basic IDE.
The versatility of Visual Basic also extends to various forms of Visual Basic software components. Visual Basic 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 components or Visual Basic libraries that can help a developer add many hidden features in Visual Basic applications running in the background. These non-visual components are commonly available as a Visual Basic library, Visual Basic Class library or as a Visual Basic custom control or ActiveX/OCX component.
An example of a visual Visual Basic 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.
The Visual Basic software products listed in this Visual Basic product gallery will allow you to save a lot of time and effort in creating your new Visual Basic app. Whether you are looking for a Visual Basic plug-in or Visual Basic utility, or you are looking for a Visual Basic control or a Visual Basic component, you will be able to find a wide variety of Visual Basic tools to help you finish your project faster.
We also have other Visual Basic product galleries for: Visual Basic 2010, Visual Basic 2008, Visual Basic 2005 and Visual Basic .NET compatible products.
