Hi all

This is probably going to sound stupid, but i just went to draw a line on a
form and couldnt find in the toolbox ? Is there something i need to add to
the toolbox ? Or is there some new way of doing things ?

Thanks

Hi,

VB.Net does not come with the line or shape control. Here is a link
to some I wrote.

what's the point of having something as a whole control that you can simply
do yourself with GDI+?

Brian,

Drawing a line with GDI+ seems to be slow.
I know not what is in it however Ken answered that in my opinion once the
best, so I assume that is in his link..

It's the same as for control arrays: A design-time solution is more
high-level because you don't need to write as much code? You could create
forms yourself using code instead of using the designer too, but there is a
reason (better RAD, fewer code to be maintained by the developer) for using
designers.
