Yes, I did but only sent the code to CVS because I needed to pull it here at work.  I plan on fixing the issue today.  
Here's why I changes TCutsomNotebook:

I got the editor displaying the code correctly.  Now I need to display that code on a notebook page but the problem is that only forms have canvas' at this popint so I need to add one to the notebook.
I started by adding it to tcustomnbotrebook but soon realized that it should be added to tcustomcontrol.  Also, I have to make sure the paint message method is used in tcustomcontrol so I can get  paint messages.   I did initially change the tnotebook but I will be returning it back to it's proper state.

Sorry for the trouble that this caused.

Has anyone changed anything recently in gtkobject.inc or in extctrls.pp that
could potentially affect the Notebook component?  The reason I ask is that all
the sudden the notebook component doesn't work any more and I get the following
warning when I compile the lcl code:

customnotebook.inc(303,44) Hint: Parameter not used PARAMS
customnotebook.inc(320,39) Hint: Parameter not used PROC
customnotebook.inc(320,60) Hint: Parameter not used ROOT
customnotebook.inc(341,39) Hint: Parameter not used ACONTROL
timer.inc(105,29) Hint: Parameter not used MSG
Warning: ./extctrls.ppu Interface CRC changed -294228524<>-1361824228
Assembling extctrls                                                            

I don't know if this warning has anything to do with the notebook not working
any more or not. I am just trying to figure out what is causing the problem.
The problem appears to be when attempting to access the Strings property of a
Notebook page. Normally, this sets the name placed on the notebook tab. 

The notebook page (TNBPages) inherits from TStrings. The Strings property calls
a virtual method called Put.  I have Put defined in the customnotebook.inc file.
Something has changed within the last few days that caused this method to stop

I know it was working several days ago and now it isn't. But I don't know
exactly what changed. I did cycle my compiler tonight, including the fcl, rtl,
lcl and all the other code. So the problem could be anywhere :-(

If anyone has any ideas that might be able to help me figure this out, please
let me know. I have been working on it now for about 3 hours tonight and still
haven't found the problem.
