Microsoft Visual Basic 2005 Power Packs 2.0

Line and Shape controls, PrintForm component, and Printer Compatibility Library all rolled into one download. 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. The Printer Compatibility Library allows projects that used the Printer and Printers Collection in Visual Basic 6.0 to be upgraded without having to re-write your printing logic. Simply adding a reference to the library, declare a Printer and make a few minor syntax changes. Then your project will be able to print using the Printers collection and Printer object as it did in Visual Basic 6.0. This version adds a new Write method to the Printer object which allows you to print text without a forced carriage return similar to the semicolon syntax used by Print method in Visual Basic 6.0.


C# developers can also use these control libraries. I have no idea why Microsoft continues to label .NET control libraries as language specific.

Most of these VB.NET PowerPacks were made to simulate functionality of VB6 (such as drawing shapes on forms and the PrintForm function).
