I was wondering if anyone knows of any good websites that have different controls to download to add into VB 2005. I know of a lot that you have to pay for. However, I am looking for ones that are open source.
The only one I know of is CodeProject.com. Great site, yet I am looking for a few more.
Thanks... I will try that site
COM and ActiveX controls that used to be in vogue in VB6 are not recommended in VB2005. Instead with the .NET framework Microsoft advises programmers to use .NET libraries instead.
You could check on MSDN whether there any any featured links to third parties providing libraries (preferable for .NET 2.0, or if you're on Vista especially, .NET 3.0).
beware when downloading alot of code from "VB Code" type sites and trying to open it in vb2005
as vb2005 is technically .NET, you will run into some problems if you arent expierenced with both vb6 and vb.net
