Visual Design Good Things (VDGT) is an ActiveX control containing:

VDAMon v1.4

VDAMon contains some features found in DBAppMon.VBX and a whole lot of new ones. List of features:

  • Background threads to monitor processes being created and destroyed.
  • Message Blaster functionality: handle window messages in VB.
  • Hotkey support.
  • Taskbar / Tray Icon support.

  • View documentation.

VDPush v1.3
Push button control with numerous bells-and-whistles.

VDPush is the 32-bit OLE Control sequel to DBPush.VBX. New features include:

  • Adjustable DropLength.
  • Templates: load and save your favorite look-and-feel on disk in design mode.
  • Cancel & Default properties if the control container supports it (like VB4 does). VDPush will correctly render itself as the default button when appropriate.
  • Win95 look-and-feel (classic style is still supported).
  • 13 predefined pictures.
  • Value property.
  • Optional caching of transparent picture masks to improve redrawing time.
  • View documentation.

VDTTip v1.1
Tool Tip control. Support for irregular shaped bubbles. No programming needed, but a full programmatic interface exists if total control is desired.

VDTTip is the 32-bit OLE Control sequel to DBTTip.VBX. Changes:

  • It's no longer necessary to include a WMF if you only want a solid rectangle background.
  • Won't work application wide. You'll have to include a VDTTip on each form containing Tool Tips.
  • View documentation.
