Has anyone used SharpLibrary

Has anyone used SharpLibrary?

Any comments on quality, value for money?

Any other recommendations for good quality component libraries?

I tested with them, right up to the current release and found several issues.  Most could be worked around, but the show stopper was how they worked with other libraries.

From another author:

"Thanks for your feedback. I'm not sure what would cause this, the only
thing I can think of is a namespace conflict of some kind. It's a common
obfuscation technique to have single letter namespaces and type names.
On the other hand, I've had other reports of Sharp* tools not playing
well with other controls.

Sorry I can't be of more help,"

They are quite $$ for what you get.

I've been using DevExpress components and they are truely hi-quality.  Supprt is amazing.

Hope this helps.
