Is this feature beside the point?
That's not easy to implement in current achitecture of codejock.

Problem 1:
Rectangle is disabled in OnKillFocus.

void CXTPTaskPanel::OnKillFocus(CWnd* pNewWnd)

    m_bDrawFocusRect = FALSE;



Problem 2:
IsDrawFocusRect returns always false because ::GetFocus() == m_hWnd

int CXTPTaskPanelToolboxTheme::DrawGroupCaption(CDC* pDC, CXTPTaskPanelGroup* pGroup, BOOL bDraw)
            if (pGroup->IsItemFocused() && pGroup->GetTaskPanel()->IsDrawFocusRect())
                rcText.DeflateRect(-1, 2);
                DrawFocusRect(pDC, rcText);

BOOL CXTPTaskPanel::IsDrawFocusRect() const
    return m_bDrawFocusRect && (::GetFocus() == m_hWnd);

Unfortunately IsDrawFocusRect() isn't virtual.

Make it sense to change m_bDrawFocusRect into an enumerator with 3 states?
- None
- DrawFocusRectActive
- DrawFocusRectAlways
