programmatically create and delete controls dynamically at run time (G Type?)

Status: New

in LabVIEW NXG we have G Types Control which allow us to create and delete controls dynamically at run time.

Creating Controls Dynamically on a Panel - LabVIEW NXG 5.1 Manual - National Instruments 

 

Since LabVIEW NXG is deprecated (no further development) and announced that: the strengths of the NXG platform will be integrated into LabVIEW 2021(+),

 

Will that possible for us to have such G Type feature in LabVIEW? when probably?

All you'd need is a reference to the new control. I don't think a new type is required. 

 

Not sure how this isn't a duplicate (I can't find one). This has been high on everybody's list forever.

Please let me know the link of any of previous similar idea. I would participate in providing kudos for sure.

(Recursive) Subpanels can make this work to some extend. It's a pain though.
