What I seem to have done is create an appropriately sized background to sit behind the control and then used a LC field to position/align the entry text correctly - with the textHeight of the LC field set to the same value as the fontSize. I then create the native control and set its rect to the rect of the LC field and its fontSize to the LC field's fontSize. This seems to work for me.
