WPF custom control and adding DependencyProperty to custom control

To create custom control in WPF, choose WPF Custom Control Library project in VS2010. Then rename the default added class to your choice.

Now I am going to add dependency properties in the class file. These properties will be then available in Properties window once you use the control in any WPF application.
