If you just want to add controls to the UserControl, then all you have to do is replace the UserControl's default designer with a ParentControlDesigner. However, if your intention is to add controls onto the constituent controls of the UserControl, then I doubt whether this is possible without an extensively customized designer as the designerhost is aware only of the UserControl and not it's constituents. (You might want to double-check this on Mircrosoft's Windows Forms forum) Prakash
