EndUpdate Terminates a [BeginUpdate] reactivating the control after a long-time update
ExternalInitControl Some controls contained into this package may have bad iterations when used into Usercontrols.
This because VB6 cannot detect, in some cases, that the usercontrol is in Design or User mode so the control may appear running at design time (so you cannot move it in many cases).

Controls that may have problems are: ctlUniTextBoxXP, ctlUniRichTextBoxXP, ctlUniListBoxXP, ctlUniListBoxExXP, ctlUniComboBoxXP

Check this function for a solution sample
