Yup, sounds good.

OK.

It's not far out. Controls can't really have all the logging/error handling
that everything else does so you really need to make them bombproof. My main
concerns will be (in the future, when your looking to integrate the code),
object/variable naming, consistant indenting (2 char), and licence the
comments.

1) Check the spelling of dtbFieldConstraint's values before you write too
much code around them.
2) I don't like the italic/underline. I think plain for regular fields, and
bold + a colour for fkey/pkeys etc.
3) Use of only 3 datatypes is not good. It should support any (including
custom) types, as does the rest of pgSchema/pgAdmin. Of course, this will
make the box bigger, but I think it's a must.

Looks pretty good though. You might want to drop email to Mark
(myeatman(at)put(dot)my(dot)domain(dot)here) he's the 3rd core developer but is usually
very quiet. He's been working on a similar sort of control on and off for
some time to represent a node on a network in a network mapping extension to
some other software we write. It strikes me that there will be  many
similarities between the code in his and your controls, especially when it
comes to drawing & tracking many of them and drawing links between them.

Regards, Dave.
