Asp.net Graphics.FromImage question

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I am just getting started with drawing in ASP.Net 3.5 using VisualStudio 2008.  I need to create floorplan drawings.  I'm having trouble creating the Graphics object to paint on.   I found a good video based done in C# in ASP.Net 2.0 where the Graphics object was created simply using Graphics.FromImage(b) where b is a bitmap object.  I have interpreted the simple code in VB.Net and I am trying to set my Graphics object to Graphics.FromImage(b).  I get the code error "FromImage is not a member of PermitPkg1.aspx.Graphics.  I know this is really simple but I've gone round and round and need some help
