Isn't this a job for the "templateControl"? Of course, a major limitation is that there is only one template for each control type. I think it would be great to have as many of these as required, defined, as you are trying to implement, similar to a custom property. Maybe a feature request?

A while back, there was a discussion on how to store an control definition
in a custom property and create the control from the custom property by
copying and pasting the control into and out of the custom property.

I have all that working fine but I need the pasted control to end up in a
group and the paste command doesn't have an option to paste into a group (
that might be a nice enhancement).  Currently I paste the control onto the
card, copy it into the group then delete the pasted control.  That works OK
but wondering if there's a more direct way to do it.
