Their Windows Explorer GUI Controls are the best I've seen on the market.."
well documented controls were easy to use and saved days of development
time. I believe it cut the project development time in half. The samples
you provided with the controls made it very easy to
implement your controls into our project."
- Chris McNeilly, Upper Canada Specialty Hardware
This control works great, by the way; very well written. It's just what
I need for this application. I dreaded the prospect of writing something
like this on my own and was happy to find this."
