I have a need to have several "speedo" style controls on my winform. I will be using a timer control to pass the current value to the control every 1/2 a second. I need the control to draw the needle in the corresponding position showing the up to date value. I also need a needle showing the maximum that the value has gone to. I dont need a scale on the control. I have a bitmap that I will use as the background.

I think the best way to do this is to create a custom control that I pass a value to. What I need is the code to create this control and to draw the current and the maximum needles.  

I will give 500 points and an A grade to the person that can supply with the full working code.

Thanks in advance
