  • Hi Rajesh,

    Aggregation means that the containing (outer) object creates the contained (inner) object as part of its creation process and the interfaces of the inner object are exposed by the outer. An object allows itself to be aggregatable or not. If it is, then it must follow certain rules for aggregation to work properly.

    Aggregation Adds aggregation support for the control you are creating.

    Yes: Create a control that can be aggregated.

    No: Create a control that cannot be aggregated.

    Only: Create a control that can only be instantiated through aggregation.
