How do you draw at all if not: windowObj->Draw,IDLgrViewObject ?
The object reference returned from widget_control IS your window
But as there isn't another way of drawing object graphics I nearly
suspect I miss something here? (perhaps a joke?)
To an object graphics window you cannot draw direct graphics.
