How much logic to put into OnPaint?

I have started writing a small DirectX application to render 3D shapes
(mostly boxes).

I am planning on putting OnPaint into a separate thread with a timer, and
just using single buffering (one screen).

How much of the geometry should I put into the shared object(s)? For
example, if I construct a box, should I store it as series of triangles in
the main thread and pass these to OnPaint, or should I just pass the box
corner co-ordinates and let OnPaint break it into triangles?

Hello all, I am trying to override OnPaint in a custom textbox control (so I can drawstring a caption, etc.). In the code below, I get the "painting the form" message as expected, but not the "painting the control". It also has no effect to explicitly call txtTest.Invalidate or txtTest.Refresh. Am I missing something simple here? Any push in the right direction is appreciated.
