Product description


For programmers who don't know Visual Basic or have CCE, this book allows them to take advantage of this technology, providing over 101 prebuilt custom controls that can be plugged in to any of the nine major programming languages. CD-ROM includes 101 prebuilt, ready-to-run custom controls ready to plug into any program created in one of the nine basic languages, source code, test, and Visual Basic 5 Control Creation Edition.

From the Author

Add powerful ActiveX controls to your applications!
This book explains how to create ActiveX controls using the Visual Basic 5 Control Creation Edition (CCE). It also includes a brief chapter on Visual Basic fundamentals, and a WORKING COPY of the CCE, so users of C++, Delphi, and other languages can create controls quickly and easily.

The book includes 101 ready-to-run ActiveXcontrols (I don't know why it says 150 in the other comments) you can use immediately. You can also modify them to create your own controls.

This site also contains lots of tips, tricks, and example programs demonstrating advanced Visual Basic techniques.

If you have comments, suggestions, or whatever, I'd love to hear from you at RodStephens@vb-helper.com.
