I would like to draw lines that span rows and columns of a grid. For example, a line that goes from the centre of grid element A1 to the centre of grid element A10. They need to resize with the grid such that the line still goes from A1 to A10. Help please!

[Just to clarify, by A1 i mean element 0,0 (or any element really) and A10 could be thought of as 0,9. I was just referring to columns as letters and rows as numbers for some random reason]

I would think that this article describes a possibility (with Line.Stretch="Fill"):

That's great. The important bits are to bind the columnspan property of horizontal and vertical lines to the x and y dimensions of the grid. Set stretch to fill. And, unlike the sample code, set horizontal and vertical alignment to center. Thanks.
