CustomControl Element for Control for Controls for Configuration (Format)

In most cases, a control has only one definition, which is defined in a single CustomEntry element. However it is possible to have multiple definitions if you want to use the same control to display different .NET Framework objects. In those cases, you can define a CustomEntry element for each object or set of objects.
