Divider Line like VS.NET about box


Is there a divider control in VB.NET similar to a Horizontal Line in HTML?
In the About Box of VS.NET, there is a divider line at the bottom of the
page.

Hi, No there isn't, but do not despair!! I suggest doing the following:

(Assuming what you are talking about is the 2 pixel indented (or etched)
line)

1. Create a panel... make it at least 2px in height and place it where you
want the line. If you make it larger than 2px, for easy placement, the line
will be drawn at the bottom of the control. But it will *always* be drawn as
2px.

2. Open up the code editor and make sure you are meddling with the Paint
event of the Panel.

3. Enter the following code:

ControlPaint.Dr awBorder3D(e.Gr aphics, DirectCast(send er, Panel),
Border3DStyle.E tched, Border3DSide.Bo ttom)

If you want more lines, then edit the handles clause after your painting
subroutine to include the panel's you also want to paint the line on.

Add a label control, set its height to 2 pixels and set its 'BorderStyle'
property to 'Fixed3D'.

Hi, I needed a method to determine if a point was on a line segment in 2D. So I googled for some help and so far I have evaluated two methods. The first method was only a formula, the second method was a piece of C code which turned out to be incorrect and incomplete but by modifieing it would still be usuable. The first method was this piece of text:

Hello, I have a simple script to parse a text file (a visual basic program) and convert key parts to tcl. Since I am only working on specific sections and I need it quick, I decided not to learn/try a full blown parsing module. My simple script works well until it runs into functions that straddle multiple lines. For example: Call mass_write(&H0, &HF, &H4, &H0, &H5, &H0, &H6, &H0, &H7, &H0, &H8, &H0, _

Hi, I've got a list view that displays a series of images. I'd like to be able to draw a divider across the list view to divide the images into groups. Ideally, I'd have a group name, with a line underneath it that spans the ListView. How could this be done? I tried using an image as the divider, but it forced the divider image to be the same size as the image size used for the ImageList that stores the images for the ListView.
