Hi

I did

protected override void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs pe)
        {            
            Graphics g = pe.Graphics;

g.DrawRectangle(penpieblack, x + 150, y, 20, 20);

In an old program and it worked fine.

Now I have a tabcontrol and three tabs within it.

Is there a special way to specify where to draw the data?
Ill only want it on one of the three pages in the tab control

Thanks
Boof

Try this:
First add a tab control with tabpages on it.
Add a PictureBox to one of the tab pages.

In the paint event of the PictureBox we can add the following code to draw a string.

 private void pictureBox1_Paint(object sender, PaintEventArgs e)
 {
      Graphics g = e.Graphics;
      g.DrawString("This is the new string drawn",new Font("Arial",10),Brushes.Blue,new
                            Point(30,30));
 }

Thanks
