     This code helps to remove some of the more annoying things about designing a GUI in VB. All of the classes here do so by subclassing controls. The classes included are as follows: - CAnchor: Mimics the behaviour of anchored controls in .NET, so that you aren't forever adding code to the Resize event of a form. - CMinMaxSize: Allows you to set the minimum and maximum sizes for a form. - CMouseEvents: Gives you access to the mouse events in Windows that VB does not expose - i.e. hover and leave events, and mouse wheel events. - CRTBLinks: Makes light work of automatic URL detection in the RichTextBox. - CScrollbar: Gives you access to the 'proper' API scrollbars as opposed to VB's ones. The project group includes a test project for you to see it all in action. NOTE: You may have to make the whole project group before it is usable as the test project depends on the library.

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:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. 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
