Hi,

I would like to draw a line on the top edge of a panel.
I quess I need the onpain-event of the panel for that.
But I don't know how! And the line must have the color

You need to add the Paint Event to the Panel using the Events Tab in its Properties

Then just add something like this in the Paint Handler...

        private void panel1_Paint(object sender, PaintEventArgs e)
        {
            Pen p = new Pen(new SolidBrush(Color.FromArgb(0xC2, 0xC4, 0xCB)));
            e.Graphics.DrawLine(p, 1, 1, 100, 1);
        }

Hope this helps...

It does not draw the whole line on the top edge of the panel.

I have change:

e.Graphics.Drawline(p, 1, 1, 176, 1);

Now the line is as wide a the panel width.

But when I resize the panel the line stays the same!!!

or whatever your panel is called
