Drawing a graph on a custom web control in ASP.Net 2.0 and c#

I have the need to design a web control whose job will be to draw a graph (using GDI+ functions) on its surface; looking on line I found a number of examples on how to draw on ASP.Net Web Forms (using either a stream in the page's response or saving the image onto a file and having an image control display that). These examples are however based on a Page object and offer very little explanation of how one can arrange the graphs position in relation with other controls on the form.

Is there a way for me to design a custom web control which will draw the graph on its surface? Can I access the control's surface?  An example would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Chris

Not really.  Web applications aren't like a windows application where you have explicit control and access to the form.

All your rendering has to be controlled by the HTML elements which are then controlled using CSS.

You can explicitly control the CSS on the client however, you have to do all the work server side before sending the page to the client.

With AJAX or an IMG control that requests a page like this <img src='http://myserver/MyRenderingPage.aspx" /> you can return results without a full round trip but ultimately what you can do client side has to be completed using JavaScript or new tags like HTML 5, Flash or Java.
