Windows graphics design interface [GDI+]

This week - after a heavy bugfixing period of our application - I started again working on a component to create a custom chart. This is the first time that I am confronted with GDI+. GDI+ allows you to create graphics, draw text [+ lines and shapes], and manipulate graphical images as objects. You can use GDI+ to render graphical images on Windows Forms and controls. Cool stuff actually!

In my spare time I'm working on a more generic chart component for simple line charts where you can set the margins, colors, scales, ... at run-time.

Hopefully I can post some of my findings on this chart component next week-end.
