Hi,

I counter a problem when I draw a set of rectangles on picturebox, using line method.

the rectangles' height are 30 and width are 10, but the result is not what I expect.

some rectangles are slim and some are slightly thicker, though they are with same width value.

I do not know how to solve it.

Anyone can help me?

Picture1.Line (100, 100)-(1000, 1000), 1, B

Coordinates specified here do not represent Top, Left, Width, Height as in other controls.

Theese coordinates are exact points where rectangle should be drawn.       Picture1.Line (X1, Y1)-(X2, Y2), 1, B
So we could think of them as   Line (Left,Top)-(Right,Bottom).

So rectangle in above example has width and height of 900

To translate Widths and Heights to Right and Bottom you can use:

Right = Left + Width
Bottom = Top + Height
