What is a .NET component? .NET components are pre-built pieces of software that you can re-use within the Microsoft .NET Framework (pronounced dot net framework) to help you create your application faster and hopefully with fewer bugs. By re-using .NET software components you not only save time and money, but you also get the opportunity to use other people's expertise and knowledge that will give your app extra functionality and features - fast. In this filtered view of our product catalog you will only find .NET compatible products, these products include both .NET Components and .NET Controls as .NET downloads for you to try and buy.
What is a .NET Control? A .NET Control has a visual aspect and can be used on a form or Web page to control the behavior of the user interface, so the user of the app can use a .NET UI Control to: enter data, click on a button, select from items displayed on a drop down list, draw a chart or graph based on data that they have entered into a .NET datagrid control etc.
What is the difference between a .NET Component and a .NET Control?
A .NET Component does not always have to have a visual interface, for example a .NET Component could work behind the scenes on a server and be used to calculate the tax due on an invoice for goods sold to a customer or to create a PDF version of that invoice and then email it to the customer's email address. .NET Controls are User Interface (UI) controls and they are a subset of .NET Components and as such all .NET Controls are therefore .NET Components, however, the reverse is not true, a .NET Component is not also a .NET Control, as a .NET Component does not have to have a visual or visible interface and it does not have to appear on a Windows form, Web Form or Web page as part of the UI.

Microsoft Visual C# 2010 (MS Visual C# 2010) allows Visual C# 2010 programmers to rapidly create Windows applications for their end users. (C# is pronounced c-sharp). Visual C# 2010 developers can extend the standard functionality available inside the Visual C# 2010 IDE with a variety of Visual C# 2010 add-ins and Visual C# 2010 tools. The extensibility of Visual C# 2010 is one of the main reasons it has proved to be popular with developers, as Visual C# 2010 software engineers can find Visual C# 2010 downloads from other companies or other VC# developers to act as a Visual C# 2010 extension to their Visual C# 2010 IDE or Visual C# 2010 app.
The versatility of Visual C# 2010 also extends to various forms of Visual C# 2010 software components. Visual C# 2010 controls can be used to create feature rich Visual C# 2010 user interfaces on forms and Web pages inside Visual C# 2010 apps. These Visual C# 2010 UI controls are augmented by non-visual Visual C# 2010 components or Visual C# 2010 libraries or Visual C# 2010 .NET Class libraries that can help a developer add many hidden features in Visual C# 2010 applications running in the background. These non-visual components are most commonly available as a Visual C# 2010 library for .NET, also referred to as a Visual C# 2010 .NET Class.
An example of a visible Visual C# 2010 control is BCGControlBar Library for .NET, a Visual C# 2010 Class Library that allows you to create an MS Office Ribbon style or look and feel to your latest Visual C# 2010 project UI. A non-visible Visual C# 2010 Class Library component example is a Visual C# 2010 compatible product call IP*Works! .NET Edition that includes various C# .NET Classes, including a C# .NET Class that allows you to send emails via SMTP and POP and another a C# .NET Class to transfer files reliably using HTTP or FTP Internet protocols from within your Visual C# 2010 program.
