To save space at the user interface, I created an XControl that you can collapse to the title only or expand to see all.
Each Control/ Indicator can be collapsed or expanded and all of them can be stucked together.
Each Control is referenced to set the dependance to the others. Within the properties you can set to which control each is stucked, if the control initially is collapsed or expanded and the color of the control. The Name is set to the control's label.
