Organizing custom controls in the Controls palette

Organize custom controls in the Controls palette. You can put them in categories for easy access.

About this task

When you have multiple custom controls in the Controls palette, you may want to organize them in separate categories for easy access. For example, you may want to put the custom controls that you use most often in a category called Favorites.

To put custom controls in categories, do the following steps:


  1. Open the custom control as an independent design element in the editor (meaning it is not inside an XPage).
  2. In the Properties view, click the Custom Control tab.
  3. In the Category field, type the name of the category where you want the custom control to appear in the Controls palette. By default, custom controls are located in a section called Custom Controls in the Controls palette.
  4. Click File > Save to save your changes.
