CTC WPF Client Generator - Custom Controls
Custom Controls are controls that extend Standard Controls to implement specific requirements or to take advantage of Third Party and additional WPF Toolkit controls.

Custom Controls are used for substituting Standard Controls on the generated form when the User Interface requirements demand an interface that cannot be satisfied by the standard controls. Using the CTC Configurator, Standard Controls can be substituted with Custom Controls. See the CTC WPF Client Configurator documentation for further details.

Included with the CTC WPF Client Generator are a number of Custom Controls. These can be used out of the box or changed to suit local requirements. The source code of the Custom Controls is part of the installation package.

Included in the list of custom controls below are selected controls from the Microsoft WPF Toolkit. The WPF Toolkit is a free download and contains a number of additional controls that work on top of the core WPF release. Other Toolkit controls and Third Party controls can be included on request. For more information on the Microsoft WPF Toolkit see http://wpf.codeplex.com/.
The following lists the Custom Controls that are delivered as part of the CTC WPF Client Generator:
