I want to build an application in VB.NET 2003. It will consist of a menu/toolbar at the top, a tree structure and pallete object on the left, and a main screen that will be composed of boxes, lines and other shapes interconnected with each other. This main screen will need to be a window to a much larger structure which should be scrollable. The data will probably be stored in an access database using ADO.NET (I think I can handle this part).
I have absolutely no idea how to do graphics in VB.NET, even though what I'm doing will end up being much simpler than say, a 3D game. Consider it like a large flowchart or DFD diagram that will be much, much larger than the viewable area.
Can anyone offer me any advice on where to start? I used to do a lot of programming when I was younger, and understand the concepts of OO and all, but just need some advice how to get going on this project.
