[vc++.net] question about the shape of group


I'm using a vc++ window forms. I have a very silly question about Group. In my application window, I have used Group to group the buttons. But,  I need to make the shape of the group not to be a square.

For example, I want to make the shape of my group looking like this..

-- Buttons-------------------
|                                        |
|                            ______|
|                            |

I hope I made my question clear...

You would need to draw each line individually.
In the OnPaint of your form

Graphics* pGR = paintEvents->Graphics;
Pen* pen = new Pen( set colour you want here )
pGR->DrawLine(pen, 10, 10, 50, 10);
pGR->DrawLine(pen, 50, 10, 50, 50)

look at Graphics.DrawLine method in help
