Hey Andre, did you ever get the text box background to work? I can't see any code that refers to the setting (other than retrieving and setting the value in Program.Settings). I ask because I've tried to draw it using FillRectangle, but I can't get the appropriate size from _infoTextBox. The background box is just ... wrong. Wrong place, wrong size, and it's even truncating the output when I render it to the background bitmap with the code from andrewvos.com.
