A general method to control a desired patterned state in reaction-diffusion processes is presented. Weighted global control is aimed to keep weighted spatially averaged properties of state variable at preset values. It is shown that weighted global control creates a stable direction in the global space of system states and affects system dynamics globally. We apply it for a specific two-component reaction-diffusion system and show that the desired pattern is attainable for a wide range of the control parameters.
