Add control to a page

The following example adds the control to the specified page:

First, you initialize the PageManager. Then, you get the page node using GetPageNodes and filtering it based on Id. You create the page draft by calling EditPage. Then, if not set, you use the GenerateUniqueControlIdForPage method to generate unique ID for the control in the page. You create the control draft using the CreateControl<PageDraftControl> method and specifying the placeholder. You set the caption and find the sibling control Id by calling GetLastControlInPlaceHolderInPageId and specifying the temp draft and placeholder. You set the default permissions by calling SetControlDefaultPermissions. Then, you add the control to the temp draft and call CheckIn to get the master. Finally, to publish the news item to live state, you call the MessageWorkflow method of the WorkflowManager class and pass the required parameters.
