#33 – Control Class

The Control class inherits from FrameworkElement and is the base class for all controls that a user interacts with.  Examples of controls include: TextBox, Label, ListBox, ComboBox and Button.  Container elements like Panel and Grid are not controls.

The Control class extends FrameworkElement by adding functionality to:

  • Change the control’s visual appearance through the use of templates
  • Support visual elements like fonts, borders and a background color
