How to draw a rectangle on AxWebBrowser to high light one html element?

Hi,

Now I can get the rectangle to draw, but it seems the rectangle is not
visible. The following code is used to draw the rectangle. Hope someone can
help. Thanks very much!

SolidBrush brush = new
System.Drawing. SolidBrush(Syst em.Drawing.Colo r.Red);
Pen pen = new Pen(brush, 4);
Graphics formGraphics = Graphics.FromHw nd(this.axWebBr owser.Handle);
formGraphics.Dr awRectangle(pen , rect);

Andy,

Why don't you change the markup so that the rectangle is drawn by the
control itself, instead of drawing on the control itself?

Yes, actually I tried by overriding the Wndproc method and handle WM_PAINT
message. Unfortunately I failed. Is there any interfaces provided by
webbrowser control can be used to do this job?

Thanks!

Greetings! I am creating a form that will contain information that will eventually be on a label. The label has a 2-column table with lines separating the cells.

There's plenty of support for drawing rectangles from code. There seems to be support...

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
