How do i make the following code occur on load?  I moved the code into the form1_load area but it doesn't show up.
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        'define GDI+ context representing a form
        Dim GdiSurface As Graphics
        GdiSurface = Me.CreateGraphics

        'draw a thick curve
        Dim CurvePen As New Pen(Color.Plum, 30)
        Dim CurvePoints() As Point = {New Point(10, 100), New Point(50, 80), New Point(200, 200)}
        GdiSurface.DrawCurve(CurvePen, CurvePoints)

        'draw rectangle
        Dim RecPen As New Pen(Color.Crimson, 10) 'perimeter
        Dim RecBrush As New SolidBrush(Color.LightBlue) 'paint the body
        GdiSurface.DrawRectangle(RecPen, 10, 10, 200, 30)
        GdiSurface.FillRectangle(RecBrush, 10, 10, 200, 30)

        'Release GDI context
