To run this sample
Several options for adding controls to forms are demonstrated. Controls are added to the main form by declaring a new instance of a control and adding the reference to the form's Control.ControlCollection collection. A more a complicated scenario demonstrates creating an instance of a new form and adding controls to the new form. The controls to be created are specified in an XML file.
