Index Xcontrols inside user.lib

If an XControl is placed inside user.lib this XControl is not added to the palette.


This means that if you distribute an xcontrol you need to send a mnu file with the xcontrol which adds another folder inside the user.lib palette.


I think that an Xcontrol should be indexed like standard controls.

Just as important: The Data.ctl and State.ctl of that XControl should *not* show up in the auto built palette.

I have managed to have this filed as a CAR (#236395).

(As I believe it is an issue rather than an idea).






AQ - I have asked to amend the CAR with your request.
