Visual Basic 2005 Power Packs – now available

If you are a VB developer - and particularly if you are moving (or considering moving) from VB6 to .Net these power packs will be useful to you.

Today, we are announcing the availability of two Visual Basic 2005 Power Packs.

Visual Basic 2005 Power Packs are free Add-Ins, Controls, Components, Tools or Samples for you to use with Visual Basic 2005 to make developing great applications even easier!

Microsoft Interop Forms Toolkit 1.0

This toolkit is aimed at simplifying the use of Visual Basic.NET WinForms within a Visual Basic 6 application. The toolkit is targeted specifically at providing tools and guidance for performing a phased migration of a VB6 forms-based application to VB.NET. The goal of a phased migration is a production release at the end of each phase that has both VB6 and .NET forms running in the same VB6 .exe process. 

Microsoft PrintForm Component 1.0

The PrintForm component is designed to bring back the ability to easily print a Windows Form. With this the new PrintForm component you can once again layout the Windows Form exactly as you want it and allow your users to print the form as a quick report.

    Is the PrintForm component VB-specific or can anyone play?

    It looks like something that could be useful to all WinForms developers.

    (I note the download page doesn’t list any language dependencies in the System Requirements)

    In theory the controls will work fine in C# as they are just a library you reference.

    The Interop does some code generation, so that probably wont work in C# 🙂
