I would be grateful for that code on graphing a constant stream of  numbers into a cardiac type graph. Incorporating pic.line etc and a 10point margin either side of the incoming values
I have searched frantically for your last posting on the subject but alas no joy.
Please can you help?

mishbal, this is not paul's example but it may be of interest to you. Just place a picture box on a form and a command button, copy this code, run and click the button, the trace will run across the picture box. Click the button again to stop it.

Private Sub Command4_Click()
    Static blnContinue As Boolean
    If blnContinue Then
        blnContinue = False
    Else
        blnContinue = True
    End If
    Dim aryPoints() As Long
    Picture1.ScaleMode = 3
    ReDim aryPoints(Picture1.ScaleWidth)
    aryPoints(UBound(aryPoints)) = Picture1.ScaleHeight / 2
    Do
        intDelta = IIf(Rnd() * 100 > 50, 1, -1)
        For intPoint = LBound(aryPoints) + 1 To UBound(aryPoints)
            Picture1.PSet (intPoint, aryPoints(intPoint - 1)), Picture1.BackColor
            aryPoints(intPoint - 1) = aryPoints(intPoint)
            Picture1.PSet (intPoint, aryPoints(intPoint - 1)), vbBlue
        Next
        aryPoints(UBound(aryPoints)) = aryPoints(UBound(aryPoints) - 1) + intDelta
        DoEvents
    Loop Until blnContinue = False
End Sub

mishbal, here is a slightly different version which may be more what you need: The button and the timer are for demonstration purposes. Essentially you just need the AddData Sub. Paste a picture box on the form and away it goes. You need to replace the timer event call to AddData with something which passes your values instead. It may need a bit more modification but I can help you with that if I know a bit more about what you are trying to do.

Private Sub Command4_Click()
   Static blnContinue As Boolean
   If blnContinue Then
       blnContinue = False
   Else
       blnContinue = True
   End If
   Timer1.Enabled = blnContinue
End Sub

Private Sub AddData(ByRef Chart As PictureBox, ByVal Value As Double)
    Static dblLastPoint As Double
    Static aryPoints() As Double
    Dim dblNewPoint As Double
    ReDim Preserve aryPoints(Chart.ScaleWidth / 10)
    For intPoint = LBound(aryPoints) + 1 To UBound(aryPoints)
        Chart.Line ((intPoint - 1) * 10, aryPoints(intPoint - 1))-(intPoint * 10, aryPoints(intPoint)), Chart.BackColor
        aryPoints(intPoint - 1) = aryPoints(intPoint)
    Next
    dblNewPoint = Value * (Chart.ScaleHeight / 10)
    aryPoints(UBound(aryPoints)) = dblNewPoint
    For intPoint = LBound(aryPoints) + 1 To UBound(aryPoints)
        Chart.Line ((intPoint - 1) * 10, aryPoints(intPoint - 1))-(intPoint * 10, aryPoints(intPoint)), vbBlue
    Next
    dblLastPoint = dblNewPoint
    DoEvents
End Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    AddData Picture1, (Rnd() * 9) + 1
End Sub
