Adding XYPad for Audio Units (&AAX)

I am trying to include an XYPad in my GUI with ASPiK.
I made it with two double parameter with index numbers 14 and 15, CustumViewName TrackPad_X14_Y15
In Mac VST3 everything is fine.
In Audio Units it works but the values from the two parameters, that I can use, are not passed to the automation.
I know how to make a custom view, but not a custom control. I don’t know how to use CXYPadEx to correct that.
As soon as I create the userView like that below, nothing works any more. Has anybody experience with the subject?
CView* PluginGUI::createUserCustomView(std::string viewname, const CRect rect, IControlListener* listener, int32_t tag)


    if ("TrackPad_X14_Y15") == 0)


        // --- create our custom view

        return new CXYPadEx(rect);

The code for handling the XY Pad and decoding the custom view name is already set in the PluginGUI.cpp file. You do not need to add any code to createUserCustomView( ) and you do not need to create a custom view for it.

The XY Pad Custom control is already defined in ASPiK and you can find it in the customcontrols.h file.

The built-in code for creating the XY Pad is in the PluginGUI::createView( ) function. Here, you can see how it associates the two parameters with the control, and without a subcontroller (which is the Steinberg method, but relies on VST3 parameter binding). 

So, let the built-in code do its thing and it will bind the variables and controlIDs for you.
