XControls are user defined controls or custom control where you can add functionality to customize the control and reuse for applications.

There are 4 mainmandatory components of XControls these are also known as abilities:

1. Data

2. State

3. Facade

4. Init

Often Classes and subpanel maybe easier to use than XControls. Often XControls can take time to develop based on the functionality and complexity of the control customization. Debugging XControls are little different and details of XControl are explained here

The attach application uses XControl to create tri-state LED where

1. Gray color is to represent NO CHANGE state

2. Green color is to represent PASS state

3.  Red color is to represent FAIL state

These can be used for applications where GO/NO-GO tests are performed and display of status needed.
