graphing a function

I am not sure if this has already been answered. I have been looking but i havent found an answer i feel helps me.

I want to generate a list of plot points and plot them continously. or i want to be able to plot the sin function. either would be sufficient since i could just calculate the list points.

These points or functions will be created at run time.

where do you want to draw them?
Make a new application and add one command button, and one picturebox of whatever size you want it to be.  Paste this code.

Private Sub Form_Load()
Picture1.Scale (-1, 1.1)-(10, -1.1)
Picture1.Line (0, 1)-(0, -1)
Picture1.Line (0, 0)-(10, 0)
End Sub

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim sgPi As Single
Dim sgX(1 To 1000) As Single
Dim sgY(1 To 1000) As Single

sgPi = Atn(1) * 4

For inI = 1 To 1000
sgX(inI) = 10 / 1000 * inI
sgY(inI) = Sin(sgX(inI))
Next inI

For inI = 1 To 999
Picture1.Line (sgX(inI), sgY(inI))-(sgX(inI + 1), sgY(inI + 1))
Next inI
End Sub

You can do the same thing I did above except use a form.  in te form load, add some code like so:

Form1.Height = 4000
Form1.Width = 8000

If you enter an X, it should return a Y, not a graph.  Just one point.

to be honest your code didnt work. but you did enlighten me as to using line for graphing... i didnt know pictureboxes had a line function. so i figured it out anyway. but thanks for showing me the line function.
Funny......I tried it on my machine before I gave it to you.  What didn't work about it?
