These comments aren't really best placed for support requests, so you may wish to post on our forums, and include sample code if possible. How are you performing the painting? The fact it's happening when the control loses focus would normally strongly suggest that the control is being invalidated, and however you're doing your painting either isn't being called, or is being called in the wrong order.

You said you're creating a Graphics object which I wouldn't have thought you would ever need to do - just tap into the Paint event of the ImageBox (or OnPaint if you have created a custom control) and do your custom painting there. Basically, it sounds like you're doing your custom drawing outside of the ImageBox control's normal paint chain, so when the control is invalidating itself, your own code is unaware that it needs to be redone.

Hope this helps!
