Can I clip the lines in this area in the canvas so they stay withing the 200X200 boundary? using vb.net,c# how do i do this?

I know that if you put them inside a scrollviewer, they'll stay within its boundary. So a quick and dirty way of doing this would be to put the lines inside a scrollviewer, the same dimensions as your canvas, with the VerticalScrollBar attribute set to hidden.
