Is it possible to add a usercontrol on the paletteset on runtime?

My scenario is i already have a blank palette and i would to place a button inside and as soon as i click the button, i want to add an instance of my usercontrol..


the button will act like a menu button or some add button.

Firstly, your question is not much relevant to the original post, which has already accepted a solution. Appending your irrelevant question in this thread may result in lower attention and fewer replies. You'd better post in a new thread, and add link to other posts if you think they coul be somehow related.


To your question:


Palette itself is a UserControl (if you add a custom System.Windows.Forms.UserControl into PaletteSet), and yes, you can add Windows.Forms.Control (including UserControl) dynamically at runtime into another Control, if it is a Control container, such as UserControl, Form...


The code would be like:


public class MyPalette:UserControl



    private void Button1_Click(....)


        //Add a textbox

        TextBox txt=new TextBox()


        txt.Text="This is new text box";

        txt.Location=new Point(5,5);

        txt.Size=new Size(20,100);



        //Add something else




Although you can add controls to a control container at runtime, it does not mean it always worth doing it: it is difficult to maintain the code, debuging is a pain.


One alternative way is to add all controls at design time and turn their visibility on/off, or enable/disable them accordingly.
