Of course you may.

The project posted above was in C# which I have minimal experience in.

Cheers,

Here is what I did (kinda of cheesy, but man it works for me):

1) Take screen shots of the Word ruler, up to like 14 inches.

2) Take those images and build one big long .png file

3) Add that image as an image for a PictureBox control

4) Et voila!  You have a Word ruler.
