Desktop app with SAP B1 UI API inside



I just started developing an addon for SAP Business One 9.0.

I need some advanced components (e.g. a complex tree-grid). SAP UI API is quite poor in components. I know I can insert third-party ActiveX controls inside UI API forms, it works, but in this way my choice is limited to ActiveX controls and also developing an addon in this way is intricate...

So I wonder if I can do the opposite: can I create a classic Windows application, embedding SAP UI API controls when I need them? I could launch it from a B1 menu item.

It's an idea, what do you think? Everybody make do with SAP UI API? Or are there other solutions? Thanks
