    I was wondering what third party control libraries everyone uses?

    I'm quite partial to ComponentArts (ASP.NET) and Infragistics libraries, what would your must haves for .Net development be?

    Please don't touch ComponentArt, they're horrid.

    Well, they're great if you like controls that eschew specs and are hard to integrate with a website when you want full control over the markup.

    Infragistics is fine; sometimes: DevXpress, ComponentOne, IPWorks for ASP .NET Projects; Leadtools for multimedia apps.

    Look at http://componentsource.com/index.html for more, or this for even more.

    Hm, I was just thinking about buying the ComponentArt package!!!
    You say don't touch them, but you give no alternative?
    Probably because there isn't one available?

    I've looked at many controls, and never saw anything like ComponentArt, they look AWESOME...

    So... is there an alternative to componentart???
    If not, I will have to buy them, even if that means losing full control over the markup like you say... Sad

    These guys?

    Besides, most of the ComponentArt controls can be recreated with even more control over generated markup with a little knowledge of ECMAScript, the DOM, and XHTML.
