Is it possible to build custom UI components in app designer that can be visually re-used in app designer?

I would like to build a series of custom compound ui components from the common components in app designer, and then make the custom ui components available as drag and drop components in app designer. Perhaps something as simple as creating a container, populating the container with common components, and then saving the container as a ui*** component that can be visually selected from a component library in app designer.
Fundamentally, does this level of flexibility to create and manage custom ui components exist yet in app designer?

Thanks Dennis - confirms what I thought. I'll take the programmatic approach, but hoping to find a way to create WYSIWYG custom component libraries in AppDesigner. That would be a very useful bit of functionality, though perhaps for too small an audience

You can aswell create your components in one app, group your elements and copy & paste them to different apps.

Hi, did you find a way to do so?
I wanted to inherit a panel class, and in this subclass I can already put other controls, finally to reuse this panel in main figure across different programs.
But seems I cannot inherit `matlab.ui.container.Panel`, error prompt saying something like "class not in the allowance list".
