Using "Lotus Components" with R5

Would you happen to know if there is such a thing as "Lotus Components"? Example methods are:

Spreadsheet ---> Lotus.Spreadsheet.1
Chart ---> Lotus.Chart.1
Project Schedule ---> Lotus.Project.1
Draw/Diagram ---> Lotus.Draw.1
Comment ---> Lotus.Comment.1
File View ---> Lotus.FileViewer.1

And the sample code is:

Dim workspace As New NotesUIWorkSpace
Dim uiDoc As NotesUIDocument
Dim ssheet As Variant
Set uiDoc = workspace.CurrentDocument
uiDoc.EditMode = True
Call uiDoc.GotoField("CompExample")
Set ssheet = uiDoc.CreateObject("newssheet","Lotus.Spreadsheet.1")

Is this still applicable with R5.x version Dave? Please advise.
As far as I know, Lotus dropped "Lotus Components" long ago, and I've never tried to use them with R5. But I don't see why you couldn't. You might also want to consider using embedded third party controls as well.
