Hello,

There's was a line control in VB 6, it's not available in C# 2.0.

How can I have one on my form?

Thanks.

For vertical and horizontal lines, use a PictureBox.
Set BorderStyle to FixedSingle or Fixed3D
Set Width or Height to 1

You can't...
You can have containers that draw on themselves but the "good" old VB6 Line is gone...

Something like jaime_olivares said is usually used... I use Labels, I think they're somewhat lighter.

It seems to do the trick but how can I change the line color?

Also you can use a Panel control and change the Background property
