I hided status pane to get more place for my custom cotrols (2 listboxes). application is skinned with standard phone theme. and i meet with strange effect: background theme is not drawn properly, namely, a white rectangle 240x21 px (after gc.Clear(rect)) above CBA is there. but when i make status pane visible, everything is fine, no rectangle, standard skin is drawn good. can anyone give me advice?
