     It is hard to get Unicode in VB6. The biggest reason is the nowhere-to-be-found support in any of the native controls. In the past few years people have been mostly forced to commercial solutions or to move to another language. With UniControls I try to change this by providing some of the most essential tools for working with Unicode. **** This is the summer release. What you find here are a few powerful controls, and some that are still in an earlier level of development, yet useful for many tasks. Included: UniCaption, UniCommand, UniDialog, UniLabel, UniList, UniMenu & UniText, with some additional bonus code. **** NOTE: despite these controls using SelfSub, SelfHook and SelfCallback by Paul Caton and LaVolpe, not all of these controls are Stop button safe. This is because of UserControl's limited OLE interface, which has forced to some IOleInActivePlaceObject hacking, for which there currently is no perfectly IDE safe solution. If I didn't use it, I would have to use complex hooking to capture Enter, Escape, Tabulator, arrow keys and other navigation keys. **** Hopefully you enjoy these controls!

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
