If you're coding in Visual Basic and have ever been frustrated that (Danish) Greek, Japanese, Hindi, Korean, Russian or Chinese characters display as '?' in the user interface, then you need UniToolbox.

The UniToolbox family of controls integrate seamlessly into your software, bridging the gap between Visual Basic's internal Unicode support and the shortfalls in VB's user interface. The controls in UniToolbox have been designed as a direct replacement to the standard Microsoft controls. Simply by dropping the new controls into your existing projects you can quickly and easily add support for any language.

We've made it as easy as possible to get the most out of UniToolbox as the control suite comes with a Control Migration Wizard. Running the wizard will automatically convert your entire project, with advanced options that allow you to specify exactly how every control and property is converted. UniToolbox also comes with a set of demonstration applications that help you get the most out of supporting Unicode in every single place in your application.

UniToolbox comes with 8 standard controls, for controls such as textboxes, comboboxes, labels and buttons. For richer user interfaces take a look at UniToolbox2, which has 9 additional controls such as Grid, Menu, Tab and Treeview controls. We also offer UniTabDlg and UniFlexGrid, which are direct replacements for the SSTab and FlexGrid Controls.

What controls does UniToolbox have?
UniToolbox With this comprehensive set of Unicode-aware ActiveX controls and utilities you can at last create Unicode-enabled software with Visual Basic. UniToolbox displays Greek, Japanese, Hindi, Korean, Cyrillic, Chinese and all UniCode symbols correctly. The UniToolbox Active-X control library contains the following 'drop-in' replacement Unicode-aware controls.

UniCombo   Replaces the VB ComboBox
UniLabel   Replaces the VB Label

UniText   Replaces the VB TextBox
UniButton   Replaces the VB CommandButton
UniCheck   Replaces the VB CheckBox
UniFrame   Replaces the VB Frame
UniOption   Replaces the VB OptionButton

These eight controls are included in the UniToolbox and UniToolboxVB control sets.

You can also get 9 more controls together with the controls listed above in UniToolbox2. Also check out UniFlexGrid and UniTabDlg.

Hmmm... iirc the Danish characters worked just fine all those years ago when we did VB6 in school. And these days, I'd be very++ surprised if VB.NET doesn't have full & proper unicode support.

Besides, VB in 2009? :P

- yes, VB already supports Unicode.

And, no, not many are using VB, now. However, there are still an awful lot of people writing programs that doesn't fully support Unicode - I have quite a few of them on my PC - but of course, I have no idea if they were written using Visual Basic or whatever.
