Hmmm. I don't think that my recent post stated or implied that at all.
;-)  What I did say was:

I don't think that the above process would satisfy what you are trying
to do. Presumably, you want to create a visual component that can be
placed within a VisualAge window, not create a stand-alone window that
could then be used with other VA parts. With WBPro you could certainly
create a window containing a GFOwnDCDrawingPane widget and then convert
then *entire* window into a part. In the Composition Editor, it would
then appear as a single indivisible object like a file dialog part. I am
guessing that this is not what you had in mind.
