Visual Basic Power Packs

Power Packs are free Add-Ins, Controls, Components, and Tools for you to use with Visual Basic to make developing great applications even easier.

  • Microsoft Visual Basic Power Packs 3.0

    Microsoft Visual Basic Power Packs 3.0 now includes a new DataRepeater control. The DataRepeater control enables you to use standard Windows Forms controls to display rows of your data in a scrollable container, giving you more flexibility and customization than standard grid controls. This version of the Visual Basic Power Packs also includes updated versions of the previously released Visual Basic Power Packs, Line and Shape controls, the PrintForm Component and the Printer Compatibility Library. All are included in a single assembly, making them even easier to use and redistribute with your application.

  • Microsoft Interop Forms Toolkit 2.0

    This toolkit helps you bring the power of .NET to your existing Visual Basic 6 applications, by allowing them to display .NET WinForms and UserControls from within the same application. Instead of upgrading the entire code base, these applications can now be extended one form at a time. The goal is a phased upgrade, with production releases at the end of each iteration containing both Visual Basic 6 and Visual Basic .NET forms/controls running in the same Visual Basic 6 .exe process. Version 2.0's addition of .NET UserControls, simpler deployment tools, and MDI support, makes upgrading your applications easier than ever.
