I would like to have a canvas with all the benefits of a game canvas surrounded by HTML elements like, buttons, panels etc.

I making a strategy game which requires lots of buttons, information reports etc so using standard buttons, memo, panel etc would make much easier than remaking them for a canvas.

At the moment I am trying to use a paintbox as an option but it is less than ideal as it doesn't have the benefits afforded by TW3GameView etc. I miss things like the last frame time & frame rate.

Is it possible to combine a Game Canvas with a form? And if so how?

If paintbox is the best solution then what is the best way to ensure it is redrawn often? At the moment I use paintbox1.invalidate after it has finished drawing everything.
