Consider a UserControl TopCont that contains two other UserControls, CompA and CompB. Somewhere in the constructor of TopCont we have CompA.Paint += new PaintEventHandler(compA_Paint); CompB.Paint += new PaintEventHandler(compB_Paint); I am calling Invalidate() on both of the child components and this results in their respective paint methods executing. However at some

Consider a UserControl to which you do userControl.Paint += new PaintEventHandler(paint_method) If you don't like that way, and prefer to override onPaint( ) then the problem stated below still exists (I tried both ways). Imagine you have a Console.WriteLine( ) in the paint method so you know when its getting called. Also there is no place in the code that userControl.Paint is -+ so the event is *never* removed.

I am rotating some text is some label controls. In the one place I use it it works fine. In the other place I use it I can't figure out the syntax. I don't really understand the event. Where it works fine, it seems to fire when the form changes visibility. Here is the code.

The following code will display a tif file on a form. When another form is moved over the tif image, the tif image is erased where the form was moved. A paint event occurs when this happens. My question is..how would I save the tif images as soon as it is initially painted, and then restore the image in a paint event. It seems to me that there should be some sort of a SaveImage method and a RestoreImage method that would be fast. Note:...

Hai, I use a paintbox paint event to draw some images in a paintbox. I call the paint event by refreshing the paintbox using paintboxname.refresh() or paintboxname.update(). Problem with this kind of paint event is that the event is not raised when the application is run in a minimized state. So, my question is: How can you make sure that the paint event is called even when the application is running in the minimized state.
