protected override void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs pe)
{
int X = this.Width;
int Y = this.Height;
Bitmap bmpOff = new Bitmap(X, Y);
Graphics gr = Graphics.FromImage(bmpOff);

SolidBrush brush = new SolidBrush(Color.Black);
gr.FillRectangle(brush, 0, 0, X, Y);
pe.Graphics.DrawImage(bmpOff, 0, 0);
brush.Dispose();

// Calling the base class OnPaint
base.OnPaint(pe);
}

Are you using Visual Studio 2003 or 2005? If you're using VS 2003, it's
not very easy to make your custom control show up properly inside the
form designer. If you really need this functionality, you should
probably switch to VS 2005, which makes writing such a custom control
much easier.
