Ok sounds good, I starting doing some stubbing.  I'm new to this kind of
stuff, I'm used to writing apps where all the code is mainly mine lol.

Another question, VS.NET uses XML comments and #region #endregion stuff
to organize the IDE generated stuff more nicely, I'm guessing we want
this stripped out when I give it to you for pnet right?

Take care,

If it is code that you have written yourself, using VS.NET as merely a 
glorified text editor, then that's OK.  It would be nice though if the
used the same coding style as the rest of winforms (see pnetlib/HACKING
coding guidelines) so that it doesn't appear "jarring" to the casual

I think hand-drawing will be closer to how MS does it.  It's not a
question of 
being "quick", but rather being faithful to the MS behaviour.  Have a
look at 
the Wine code's status bar control and see what they do.
