P: n/a
I want to create a form and display multiple symbols on it.The problem
is how do I create and store the symbols so that I can display one
single symbol multiple number of times on the form without creating the
graphic again and again.

You could load them into 'Image' or 'Bitmap' objects and reuse these
objects.

Is the symbol a character symbol? i.e. not a "graphic" but text? If so put
it in a resource file and bind the control to it. Same works for bitmaps too
(at least in 2005... not sure about bitmaps in 2002).

No, these are not text objects .These are picute graphics.I want to
create them again and again...can I design the graphic objects without
using programming ..and while loading write statements in VB.Net.I want
the process to run very quickly..does loading depend on how many
graphic images I am loading on a page.
I am very new to VB.Net.Can u refer me some sites or sample codes which
will help me do this.
