      Description

      Using a factory or builder pattern to create controls is a great way to reduce the number of lines of code in an application and can also help standardize your application.

      There are 2 common pattners for doing this, one is the factory pattern, for example:

      Table sizesTable = new Table("sizes");
      ControlFactory.addColumn(table, "label", "Metric");
      ControlFactory.addColumn(table, "value");

      The other is the builder pattern, for example:

      Table sizesTable = TableBuilder.simpleBuilder("sizes").addColumn("label", "Metric").addColumn("value").build();

      Both of these styles have pros and cons. Please see attached examples.
