Want to weave Web-like applications in Visual Basic? ActiveThreed features seven active controls that provide multiple marquee styles for captions, transparent backgrounds, sound effects, graphics animation and multiple button styles, including buttons with active borders like those found in Microsoft Internet Explorer's toolbar.
The toolkit includes new looks for the check box, frame, command button, option button, ribbon button and panel, and a new Splitter control for creating multiple, resizable frames. The ribbon control lets you build multistate push buttons that you can group together like a toolbar. For 32-bit development, the controls are ActiveX Framework-based.
