The term control refers to a rectangular area of the display that may respond to user input events. A control provides a means of access to a window, which means it can be drawn onto the window and receive input.

Controls are derived from CCoeControl.

Examples of controls include:

  • buttons

  • menus

  • text edit boxes

  • main panes that display application specific data
