Drawing shapes in GDI+.

Sample Image

Introduction

The Shape control was designed to re-create the control that was lost when upgrading to the .NET Framework. This Shape control has much better control over the look.

Using the code

Pretty easy, just plop it on your screen and start playing with the properties.

Points of Interest

I originally wrote this control to get acquainted with drawing in the .NET Framework and the C# language. I had a lot of fun doing it, and learned a lot about the basics of GDI+. I think that it would make a really good tutorial for someone trying to learn the basic flow of a custom graphical control. I would appreciate if anyone adds some functionality, that you would email me so that I can add it in to my source. Enjoy!!
