IDE Development in Visual Basic

I want to Develop Orcad Like IDE in Visual Basic
(like VB IDE :)
-we can drop tools/controls/objects from toolbar into form
-make connections between them
-set the object properties
-test project in Runtime

I want this IDE to use with real time Hardware.

Can anybody give me HINT about this?
Any Example ...

OR simply what should I study in VB for this.

To create a VB like interface, you will most certainly need to get comfortable with COM Objects and how they work.  The best resource for this is a file called TLBINF32.chm (it's a help file) .  It talks about how to get the properties of dropped objects, etc.

TLBINF32.DLL and TLBINF32.chm are both on your VB CD, but not installed by default.

I think this is some thing i m trying to find


BTW , I have worked on the VB for REAL time Interfacing mostly (SPP, ECP, Com port and ISA)
I have not worked much on IDE development.However i have used toolbar,imagelist controls and ADO.

Looking for more help ...
Is there a question remaining then?
