TN - 1124 Using a WPF Control in an ArchestrA Graphic

In the previous article we left off with our control complied in release mode. Take note of the path to your .dll
From the IDE select Galaxy > Import > Client Control.
Navigate to the complied .dll and select Open.
Keep the defaults hit OK.
Create a new Symbol to embed the custom control and give it a name.
Create a new Graphic Toolset.
Move the imported control and symbol you just created to the new toolset. Open the symbol for editing.
Select the Embed Graphic Icon.
Navigate to the imported control and select OK.
Place the control, save and exit.
Check In the symbol.
Open an InTouch application.
Select the Embed Industrial Graphic Icon.
Select the Control and click OK.
Place the graphic and put the application in Runtime
From here you can export the Graphic toolbox as an .aapkg and import it into a Standalone InTouch application.
