A simple control is one that contains no other control. The term compound control or container refers to a control that contains one or more controls. The container controls may themselves be compound controls. When a control is contained in a compound control it is called a component control. Compound controls can be used to group non-window-owning controls in window-owning controls or to allow several controls to be handled together.
Examples of a compound control include:
a view that displays text in the main pane
a view that contains a listbox in the main pane
a view the contains a grid in the main pane
