Monitoring Graph

Hi, I am a binnger at C# in Windows Applications, just looking for a point in the right direction.

When you go to Task Manager, and click performance, the graph there is what I am trying to accomplish.

How is that done, is it an image drawn, and updated every half a second, or something else. Any good tutorials out there for creating such a thing in C#?

Thanks in advance

Hullo,
I personally use a 'graph' drawing control : zedgraph: http://zedgraph.org/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page
and, yes - using a timer update my graph every 'n' milliseconds.

Cheers,
Wint

I am wanting to do everything from scratch, as I am doing this for personal gain, not monetary. So tutorials on this topic would be helpful,

Thanks

CodeProject is always a good place to start when looking for examples:

  http://www.codeproject.com/cs/miscctrl/graphcontrol.asp
  http://www.codeproject.com/cs/miscctrl/wdigraph.asp

I think the top link is probably the most useful, but the second one will help once the first has satiated you :)

Oh, and I would start by just drawing the graph first, getting the hang of that before moving on to 'moving' the graph, having said that - once you have the graph drawing done, moving it becomes a doddle! Just a case of changing the values!
