Over time we made a lot of third party components for Visual Basic 6.0, keeping this programming language in trend with modern standards. Many of these controls were and still are ahead of time. Many big companies have adopted the design of certain controls designed in VB6 (vice versa also happened). Here I have chosen a set of controls designed between 2014 and 2007, that I thought were more advanced. If I omitted some state-of art projects (which is very likely) I apologize and please alert me.
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:
Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
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

One needs to register (per regtlib.exe) the appropriate typelib (OleGuids.tlb) which sits in a subfolder - alternatively (to avoid the struggling with the typlib) you can use the precompiled OCX, hosted on the Authors site...

This is the idea behind my Default Standard EXE replacement form submission, however much of the functionality and reasons for a lot of these controls is packed into less. planet-source-code.com/vb/scripts/ShowCode.asp?txtCodeId=75260&lngWId=1 (If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
