You can find them almost anywhere. There are some already installed on your PC, you find a lot on the Internet, installing neew software sometimes install components, third party that you buy, and you can even build your own!!!

One way of discovering what's in it, add it to a project using the Project/Components dialog box. Then add an instance of it to a form.

You can then look at the bottom of the properties window: there is normally a small description.

You can also check using the Object Browser. Open it via View/Object Browser menu. At the bottom of this screen, you often have some descriptions.

Warning: some controls installed by an application do not include license. You will not be able to put them on your VB form. There is nothing to do with them!!!
