There are more reasons to use the native component that many people
are not aware of them, like (in windows) using native Menu control
with custom paint si not the same as using a full custom paint
control, in example screen readers will work with native control
custom painted while they will not work in something like fpGUI.
That's not a defect of fpGUI ;)
