Post your question to a community of 469,917 developers. It's quick & easy.

Looking for a line graph control.


(Frustratingly), after unsuccessfully trying to use a picturebox
control to paint a line graph based on serial communications with a
remote device, it seems picturebox controls just won't work for this
purpose.

I have read Bob Powell's helpful articles and he seems to concur that
the picturebox is the wrong tool for this. I think I have seen or
read every article Google could find on the subject, and while there
were quite a few questions asked, there really didn't seem to be any
responses that I could make work, even though the coding examples were
quite similar to my approach.

So, has anyone here ever been able to draw a line graph on a Visual
Studio 2005 form? Would anyone happen to know of a control
(preferably free), from which I could adapt the code to my
non-commercial application?

Could anyone point me towards a resource that might be able to discuss
how to do this with a realistic approach? (Or is the graphics in
VS2K5 just not able to be used for this kind of application?)

Thanks for any help!

Maybe you can use the free zed graph
