The CustomControlBase implements the base functionality of the Windows Forms control on the HTML tag element and loads the custom controls with its respective functionalities into the HTMLUI.
// Event Handler Declaration.

// Event that is to be raised when a tree of element has been created and their size and location have 

// not been calculated yet.

private void htmluiControl1_PreRenderDocument(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.HTMLUI.PreRenderDocumentArgs e)


Hashtable tab = new Hashtable();

   // Returns an hash of elements by their User Id.

tab = e.Document.ElementsByUserID;

BaseElement maskedEditTextBoxElement1 = tab["maskedEditTextBox1"] as BaseElement;

    // Here the base functionality of the 'this.maskedEditBox1' is implemented to the'maskedEditTextBoxElement1'.
