I want to redraw picturebox's image in a thread in 50 msec intervals.
When I clear the picturebox before redrawing, it flickers.
And when I don't clear, the old image also remains!
(In fact I have two pictures overlaying (pictures background is transparent) and I want to rotate second image by angle on the first one).
My aim is to create a radar screen like real radar.
I saw a project here but I wanted to do my own.

Could you pls tell me what to do??
Should I use another control? Which one?


What I have tried:

Picturebox, Panel Control,
Graphics.Clear(), Panel.Invalidate(), Panel.Refresh(),

You can use
to reduce the flickering..

for more info :-
Control.DoubleBuffered Property (System.Windows.Forms)[^]
I can imagine that DoubleBuffered doesn't solve your Problem.
What you can do is : only repaint / refresh those area where the rotating Picture was before and also the area where it is now.

There is not such component in .NET that can show or draw image effectively!?
I have tried refreshing panel. I can't repaint rotating picture old area.

No ... you should develop your own customized control which has the Behaviour you want to have.
But I thought, that you still have developed something like this and you are stucking at a special point.
Are you familiar with controls-development ...?

Hi Ralf Meier,
Thanks for your reply.
Right now I'm learning WPF, I saw somewhere that in WPF I can do it.
Am I right?

I don't know because I mostly work with Windows-Forms.
But ... I don't think, that a Standard-Control will help you ... I think, the only way is to build your own Control which does exactly what you want.
If else the Suggestion from Solution 1 would solve your Problem - I think it doesn't do ...

What do you want to do now ?

I don't know much about WPF.
I read that working with pictures is easy in WPF. Therefore I want to do my job in WPF and call it in Windows-Form.
