Is there a technique to draw a single point in GDI+, or do I have to create an image and draw that?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I don't believe there is a way to directly create a single point in GDI+.  I was trying to do the same thing recently, but the only way I found to do it was to create a bitmap, and use setpixel to place the pixel where I wanted it.  It may be possible to accomplish this with The DrawRectangle method.  Seems to me, depending on the pen, a rectangle with a width and height of 1 would be a single pixel, although I didn't think to try that when I was working on the similar problem.  In my case the bitmap with setpixel was sufficient.
