I working on something related to the PropertyBased UI controls, and I'm not sure of the best names for them. The names will be part of method names.

 

The titles of the controls used in CodeLab are:

IntSliderControl
CheckboxControl
ColorWheelControl
AngleControl
PanSliderControl
TextboxControl
DoubleSliderControl
ListBoxControl
RadioButton
ReseedButtonControl
MultiLineTextboxControl
RollControl

The PropertyControlTypes are:

Slider
CheckBox
ColorWheel
AngleChooser
PanAndSlider
TextBox
DropDown
RadioButton
IncrementButton
RollBallAndSliders

There are also the font list and pixel op controls from CodeLab, which I also want to include.

 

Some names I'm considering are:

IntegerSlider or IntSlider
Checkbox or CheckBox
ColorWheel or ColorChooser
AngleChooser or AngleControl
DoubleVector or PanControl
Textbox or TextBox (I want the capitalization to match CheckBox, so either Textbox and Checkbox, or TextBox and CheckBox)
DoubleSlider
ListBox or Listbox or DropDownList
RadioButtons (probably use the plural version, since there are always more than one) or RadioButtonList
IncrementButton (which is what the function more generally is)
MultiLineTextbox or MultiLineTextBox
RollControl or ThreeDControl
FontList or FontChooser
PixelOps or BlendOps or PixelBlendOps or PixelOpList or BlendOpList
(I seem to recall the official name for the pixel ops changed from one thing to another)

Perhaps it seems silly, but I'm quite particular about naming things, so I was hoping for suggestions for the best descriptive name for each control.
