I want to implement undo/redo option in windows app. I create one panel control inside that adding and deleting controls at run time, so need to implement undo/redo according to added or deleted control. If i delete any control then by undo operation it should recreate. If anyone have any idea please share.
Thanks in advance.

What I have tried:

I tried some code but it works for controls state, not for add and delete control from parent.

Without knowing more about what you do with the run-time controls, I don't think we can really help you.

How are the create controls used ? Are they hooked up to Events ?

yes, attaching some mouse event to control after creation for resize and move controls within parent.

For deletion you can maintain a flag in the table to mark it as deleted and upon undo, you can reset the flag to reappear the record again. But for all this to happend you have to create another table which logs the recent required changes and accordingly you can revert the changes. You can workout for Update and Insert too. This could be the simplest approach to do this.

Haven't tried to do this ever so I agree there could be better approaches available and soon we may see some good suggestions/solutions.

In the meantime, you may check following article if it is relevant to your problem-

Hope, it helps :)
