 grpContainer = Graphics.FromHwnd(Me.FindForm.ActiveForm.Handle)

With grpContainer
 .DrawRectangle(penBlue, x0, 20, h0, 80)

how can I 'fill' in the rectangle?

Or is it outside of this particular method's ability ?

You use a brush and the "fillrectangle method" as follows :

      Dim bluebrush As New SolidBrush(Color.Blue)

      With grpContainer
         .DrawRectangle(penBlue, x0, 20, h0, 80)
         .fillrectangle(bluebrush, x0, 20, h0, 80)
      end with

You can of course change the colors when you declare it to anything you wish.
