I am drawing a grid in a panel at the load, and am using the panels paint,

"handles panel1.paint"

I cannot seem to convert the code I did to create a grid, into a function so I could pass the column numbers and rows in a drop down lists or some other control, to give the user some flexibility.

can somebody help me out?  

What I could not get rid of is the E.

I want to pass the panel into it, so I could draw a grid in it, and pass column number, row number, row height and column width.

All help appreciated!

Private Sub Panel1_Paint(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs) Handles Panel1.Paint
        'Start drawing lines and continue adding your own styles
        Dim rowHeight As Integer = 16
        Dim rowCount As Integer = 100
        Dim columnWidth As Integer = 10
        Dim columnCount As Integer = 50
        For i As Integer = 0 To rowCount
            e.Graphics.DrawLine(Pens.Black, 0, i * rowHeight, columnCount * columnWidth, i * rowHeight)
        For j As Integer = 0 To columnCount
            e.Graphics.DrawLine(Pens.Black, (j * columnWidth), 0, (j * columnWidth), rowCount * rowHeight)
    End Sub
