How can I place a UserControl in the header cell of GridGroupingControl?

In order to have a User Control in GridGroupingControl, the GridGenericCellModel and GridGenericCellRenderer classes have to be derived and the User Control that is designed must be made as a cellmodel in GridGroupingControl using these derived classes.

The following are the steps that need to be followed:

Step 1: The UserControl form is added to the Project and the required controls are dropped into it.

In the UserControl, the OnLayout() method is overridden for positioning the inner button controls.
