ATSCADA Custom Usercontrol programming

In this section, I’ll show complete demo of how to create Custom User Control in C# windows applications.
I’ll show descriptions of custom user control and basics of the custom user control. After learning this document you will be able to make the custom user control according to your own requirement.
