Controls, controls…

I’ve been thinking today – there ought to be a Wiki that lists controls, either for WinForms, ASP.NET and/or GTK#.
It’s pretty annoying to have to create a new control just because you can’t find one and then, a couple of months later, finding it…
Does anyone know about something like this?

  1. The problem I see with the above sites is that they are not Wiki’s. So, I can’t imagine that there are only about 500 sets of controls for windows forms out there. Since you have to rely on someone else to enter them, a lot are not going to get entered.

    Another thing is, if you are looking for a specific control with specific functionality, you are going to have to download a lot of trial controls until you find what you are looking for. And guess what . . . the next person looking for a similar control is going to have to do the same thing. With a wiki there is at least the potenial that people will come back and give feedback and maybe functional details of controls that they try.

    Unfortunately, wiki’s also have to deal malicious users and therefore have higher upkeep needs, but such is life.
