Draw control doesn't redraw on SplitPanel

hi @all,

I have a simple draw control which uses the OnPaint event:

protected override void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs pe)
if (ShowGrid)

It redraws fine, when I resize the window. But when it's placed on a
SplitPanel and I change the size with the splitter, the control is
almost never redrawn.

What have I missed here?

Do I need to Invalidate() my control in a resize event?
btw, CalculatePaint() does the calculation of the client rectangle,
basically this own:

_ClientRect = new RectangleF(
Width - Padding.Left - Padding.Right - 1,
Height - Padding.Top - Padding.Bottom - 1);

If the visual aspects of your control depend on its size, yes. You do.
