Have you looked at the ControlPaint.DrawReversibleLine method?
Perhaps that will do what you need.

Interesting...I've never seen that class before.

I'm a bit confused though; maybe you can elaborate on the purpose of that
class. All of the examples that I looked at in the class documentation
show using the class to draw directly in a non-painting event handler.
Normally this would be a major no-no, since drawing done in that context
isn't persistent.

So then I thought "well, maybe this is some special kind of drawing the
ControlPaint class internally persists somehow". But then I see the
methods take a Graphics instance just like other drawing methods, and that
seems to suggest ControlPaint's not doing anything other than adding some
new features to Graphics (in fact, I suppose they might have been
extension methods had extension methods been around when ControlPaint was
designed).

Are the examples bogus? Or is there something more to ControlPaint than
just adding some extra ways to draw to a Graphics instance?

(Yeah, I could use Reflector and look myself, but I don't have Windows
running at the moment and I figure it'd be better to ask someone who might
have more practical experience with the class anyway).

I'm afraid that I can't offer anything more than what you have learned
on your own. I only suggested that class because I have seen the
original poster's question many times in various forums and that is,
invariably, the answer that is given. I haven't delved too deeply
into the subject myself.
