    Drawing in/over CEikEdwin

    Is it in anyway possible to draw lines (e.g. a box) in or over
    an edit control?
    Currently the editor control always has focus so anything
    else that is rendered is hidden by the CEikEdwin box.

    What I am actually trying to do is display custom squares
    in an edit control so it is seen on top of any text that is
    already there.

    It should be possible using MFormCustomDraw class.

    From SDK help:

    virtual void DrawLineGraphics(const TParam& aParam,const TLineInfo& aLineInfo) const;
    This function is called after the background has been drawn by DrawBackground(), and before drawing the text. This function might be used to draw a ruled line under each line of text.

    The default implementation of this function does nothing.

    But to be honest, I've never been able to make it work..:-(
    If someone has working example, it will be highly appreciated.
