     Ive been working with visual basic .Net for some time now; and I have noticed that there is not GUI tools for editing and creating ConnectionStrings runtime, thats why I created my own, with similar behaviour to the CommonDialogs for file, fonts or color selection. I implemented editing for Connection string of the most used Net Data providers shipped with visual studio: SQLServer (SQLClient), Oracle (OracleClient), Microsoft Access (OleDB), OleDb Net Provider(OleDb) and ODBC Net Provider (ODBC). Note that for ODBC I make support for DSN and DSN-less Connection Strings. I also provided a way to extend the dialog for your specific providers like MySQL, PostgreSQL or Firebird. I include a simple example on how you could do this. I hope that someone find this usefull. Votes are welcome.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
