How can a make an X appear over a image/picture box control with the on click event. I want to use the line function to make a X over the image Box. I am thinking about using the. height .width  .left and .top variables of the image box witch seems to work fine wen the image/picture box is at the center of the page but when It is of to the side the X is distorted.Is this possible or is there a better way?
Thank you,
Arrummzen
