The picture on the form draws a graph, but the picture is so sensitive, it disappears if a windows comes on top of it, it also dissappears if the application window is minimized, can someone please tell me what is causing this behavior.

Thank you.

For j = 1 To count - 1
X = ArrDate(j)
Y = ArrData(j)
x1 = ArrDate(j + 1)
y1 = ArrData(j + 1)
Picture1.Line (X, Y)-(x1, y1), vbBlue
Picture1.DrawWidth = 2
Next j

do you have form.redraw set to false if so then set it to true and see if this helps.

It should be the AutoRedraw property of your PICTUREBOX set to True.

If you don't want AutoRedraw set to True, then use the PictureBoxes Paint() event to do your drawing:

So either:

    Private Sub Form_Load()
        Picture1.AutoRedraw = True
    End Sub

or:

    Private Sub Picture1_Paint()
        ' variable declarations...
   
        ' ... more code possibly ...
   
        For j = 1 To Count - 1
            X = ArrDate(j)
            Y = ArrData(j)
            X1 = ArrDate(j + 1)
            Y1 = ArrData(j + 1)
            Picture1.Line (X, Y)-(X1, Y1), vbBlue
            Picture1.DrawWidth = 2
        Next j
    End Sub
