I have custom control, a composite with borderless text field and an image. This composite has a print listener, which draws text frame around text field and image. The problem is, that focus ring is not drawn outside this composite:

On the left is my control, on the right - focused text field.

Can i draw outside this composite without invoking new GC on this composite's parent?

Hi,

The GC in the PaintEvent you get is created on your control, so there's no
way to extend its clipping beyond the Control's bounds.

The only suggestion I can think of is to give your custom control an
additional parent Composite that is larger than your control by a few pixels
in each direction, and when the parent Composite gets a Paint event then it
can draw the border on itself if appropriate.

HTH,
Grant
