I still have no clue what’s going on, but I have managed to write a passable C# application now. And have *even* um, sigh, I’ve forgotten…. ah yes, I’ve even overridden the handling of how an object is drawn so that something else happens instead! OK so I copied the code, but that’s how 90% of apps are really isn’t it? Isn’t it!?!?
I did try creating a custom control but that just went ‘rong. Also, MS Visual C# insists on putting my namespace in front of an object instantiation, even though that stops my code from compiling. When I remover it, it compiles… So I guess I must have done something a bittttt wrong there. Sigh!
