iGrid.NET is a versatile WinForms grid control for the Microsoft .NET Framework. Software developers use iGrid.NET to build highly adjustable tabular interfaces. It is fast, super-small and extensible. The auto filter and print/print-preview add-ons can be used to add required functionality. This grid is one of the most powerful unbound grids for WinForms .NET on the market.

The main idea behind iGrid is to provide the developers with a lightweight and easy-to-use ActiveX grid, which is super-fast, highly-adjustable and ideal for creating unbound grids in VB/VBA applications.

ActiveX components for VB6 and VBA
ActiveX Tooltip Component - hTooltip
The main goal of this ActiveX component is to give you a handy tool you can use to create native Windows tooltips with different options and features in your applications.
hTooltip allows you to use most of the modern features of Windows tooltips: the rectangular and balloon tooltip styles, tooltips can have a title and one of the predefined system icons, tooltips can be displayed on demand at the specified point on the screen, the ability to adjust the color and time parameters of the tooltip window.
VBA Dir Function Alternative - xDir
This ActiveX library provides developers with an easy way to enumerate files and folders in a specified folder and all of its subfolders, filter folder and file list using different criteria, implement context search in file contents using the ASCII and/or Unicode character-encoding scheme and create folder and file tree. xDir provides high performance and can enumerate nested folders in contrast to the VBA Dir function. The professional edition of the component allows you to enumerate files and folders in a background process using asynchronous mode.
10Tec/vbAccelerator ImageList OCX
vbAccelerator ImageList OCX, developed by Steve McMahon, is an advanced ImageList component that can be used instead of the standard MS Common Controls ImageList control supplied with Visual Basic 5/6. It supports more file formats, image transparency, 24- and 32-bit images and provides useful methods not available in the standard ImageList control.
The author stopped the development of the component, but gave us a permission to continue this work.
