How to Call DrawItem Event manually

Last Modified: 2013-12-17
The Standard TabControl does not behave the way i  would like it to when i disable a TabPage.
I would like do grayout the 'raider' of the tab page and make the page inaccessable (standard behavoir in former vb6). I have written some code to do this using the DrawItem event. This works fine for me except for some situations when the event is not raised. My question is: how can i raise the event manually. or in other words how do i get the the following information normally provided by the DrawItemEventArgs: e.Graphics, e.Bounds, e.Index

thank you
