Please see my screenshot:
As you can see I have a simple custom control.
I can place a bunch of these on the form. That's okay..but it is not very dynamic. The number is fixed.
But what I want is some kind of Container control that contains a bunch of these controls.
The number of custom controls inside the container control can increase or decrease at runtime.
It would go something like this:
//Drop the container control on the Form
//Behind the scenes it would be declared like this (for example....this would happen automatically)
CustControlContainer ccc = new CustControlContainer( )
//Programmatically create custom controls to the Container
//This would add four controls...each one would take up a fourth of the space inside the Container control.
//This would delete 2 of the 4 controls. The 2 remaining controls would resize in order to divide the available space in half.
//This would add 2 controls again...bringing the total number of controls back up to 4 controls...which would divide the Container control available space evenly.
I want to get this far....and then think about my next question.
I am not sure if this is exactly how the finished control will work...but it will get me started.
