C# Graphics 2D Question

3 New Member
Hi guys,

I'm trying to use Graphics.Graphi cs2D.DrawLine in my app. I can draw the line perfectly but I want it to appear on top of a panel.

The line is drawn when an item in a context menu is selected (ie. on that item's click event) so I cant use the panel's Paint event handler to draw the line.

To put what I'm trying to do in context:

I have 5 buttons. Each of these buttons has a context menu with various choices. Each button is placed by the user somewhere into the panel. Then when the user chooses a context menu item, I want to draw a line from the buttons location, to a Point in the panel that is specified in the Click event handler of the context menu item.

So far all I have been able to do is draw the line on the form (but not the panel), I can also draw the line beneath the panel.

Any help will be appreciated.

I am using graphics as backgrounds for forms,buttons,labels etc. The question is: is it faster to load all graphics from files on app start or to use it embeded (places in editor during design). Reason for my question is that application has 5mb, while without graphics it has cca 400kb. Graphic files (bmps) take about 200kb (in program, they...

If I have a question, about how to implement a graphics algorithm in C++, but not specifically related to getting the graphics on screen (that I can work out for myself). Would asking for help in the implemention ( asking things like whether I should use std::vector vs std::list for example ) be off topic here? Thanks, jw.

I have been learning C++ on my own. For some projects, I would like to use graphics. What is the easiest way to do this? (I am using Visual Studio Express 2005.) Separate from the ease of use question, what way(s) are most used? I have heard of things like qt... Would it be easier to just learn and use C# instead?
