ID 0 is the id for all template objects (the templateButton, the
templateField, etc.) You shouldn't ever see that ID in controls you
create yourself. Did you name your custom templates "templateButton" or
"templateField"? If so, then the engine is returning the built-in
template ID and not the one you created.
