Custom Indirect UI Controls?

Is there any way to add custom controls in Visual Studio projects that can be used along side Indirect UI controls? The controls would have to maintain the previously-used settings the way Indirect UI controls do. Preferably they would have the same interface, but that's not absolutely necessary.

No, Indirect UI is a closed system.

The small increase in performance you get coding in C++ over C# is hardly enough to offset the headache of coding in the C++ language. ~BoltBait

That's unfortunate. I have several plugins, such as the Perspective Transformation, that need controls not provided by Indirect UI. I'm wiling to write one custom control, but I'm disinclined to write a whole suite of controls to replace all the other Indirect UI controls used by the plugin.

Interesting, BoltBait, but it seems to be incomplete, with a long to-do list, and doesn't seem to provide source code, so I don't think it would help in adding new controls.

 

In the absence of the ability to incorporate custom controls into Indirect UI, what I'd really like to do is develop a library of regular VS-style controls that match Indirect UI controls in appearance, and which provide the option of preserving the previously-used settings. My main problem is finding time for such a relatively involved project.
