Looking for graphic controls to use in .NET

P: n/a
Hello,

I'm looking for a graphic control I can use in .NET.
I need the following features:

- drawing shapes
- filling shapes with color, gradient or texture
- drawing splines, arcs and curves
- present the drawings on a graphical map (jpg)

I prefer .NET technology. I know Vector Graphics ActiveX controls but that's
using COM technology.

Who knows a graphic control with specified features above?

Thanx,

Simon

Do you want to design these shapes visually or using code? If it's the
latter everything you could possibly ever want or hope for is in the
System.Drawing namespace.

If it's the former... I'm not sure about "pure .NET" controls, but you can
always embed (I would think) PowerPoint, Visio, or even Microsoft Draw
objects via OLE/COM (and even manipulate them programmatically if you so
wished). There might be more developer-specialized visual solutions. I
dunno.

Thanks.
I want to use code to calculate the shape and then present in on the screen.
Í go looking in the system.drawing namespace

Check out the 'System.Drawing' namespace and its subnamespaces such as
'System.Drawing.Drawing2D'.

MetaDraw .NET Winforms should meet your needs
except for Splines ( but we do support Beziers )

MetaDraw supports Drawing by code or you can enable end-user drawing
In addition to basic drawing, MetaDraw supports Selection, Moving / Resizing
drawn shapes, Zoom, Scroll, UnDo / ReDo, tagging of drawn shapes with hidden
data, and much more

Check it out at http://www.Bennet-Tec.com/BTProducts...w/MetaDraw.htm
