Red X in ToolStrip




i'm seeing red x in our application toolstrip when it fails to paint
the tool strip. we could not understand as to why the system.drawing
is throwing an exception. i'm using the .NET ToolStrip control.

can someone explain me what is the reason behind the System.Drawing
throwing exception.

Thanks & Regards

here is the exception trace.
System.OverflowException: Overflow error.

I am also getting the same issue, seeing a red "X" mark in the TreeViewAdv
control (3rd party control) on windows form when used Refresh() method of
TreeViewAdv control to draw the nodes. Through debug the Tree is able to show
the nodes fine, even If I had put a single break point in the code and
continue. This error happens only when "NO" break point in the code and run.
Tried with invoking the control method to refresh in a seperate control
thread, but no success..
Would appreaicate if any one comes with a solution for this... Thanks!!!
