Hi all,

Can i use override void OnPaintBackground in custom user control?My purpose to use this method in custom user control is because i will draw the base line (grid) as image in the drawing area at the initiate state, but after that, i don't want to repaint again the background(image) when i draw some line on it. Thus, i need to override the OnPaintBackground method and disable it to fulfill my purpose. I can done it in Component,but how about in custom user control?[confused]

Any tips are welcome.

you can override OnPaintBackground, I haven't have any problem with that so far. If you want to draw over default background, be sure to call base.OnPaintBackground as a first thing in your override method. If you want to draw your background completely by yourself, don't call base.OnPaintBackground at all.
hope this helps
