Hi

I have a TaskPane in my Excel VB.net Add-in that uses the Paint event
behind a TabPage Control to achieve a gradient finish. I am having problems with the TreeView freezing at times and I also have to use my scroll buttons instead of the mouse.
Does painting the Taskbar usually cause these problems. I think that the TabPage might be the main cuplprit
My code is below.

    Private Sub TabPage3_Paint(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs) Handles TabPage3.Paint
        Try

            Dim graphics As Graphics = e.Graphics()

            Dim rectBrush As New System.Drawing.Rectangle(0, 0, 450, 600)
            Dim brush As LinearGradientBrush
            brush = New LinearGradientBrush(rectBrush, Color.FromArgb(46, 100, 160), _
                            Color.White, LinearGradientMode.Horizontal)
            graphics.FillRectangle(brush, rectBrush)
        Catch ex As Exception

        End Try
    End Sub

Can you not use BackgroundImage property of tabpage to show the gradient instead of painting it?
