I have a VB.net WinForm application that has a picture on it.  I need to high light certain areas of the picture with oval shapes (just the outline of the oval).  There are going to be about 2-30 ovals on the picture.  It's to help identify what is wrong on the picture.  So some of the ovals may not even be high lighted or shown.

Should I use the PowerPacks Oval shapes or is there a better more up to date way of doing this?  Seems like with powerpack shapes, you cant control the order (bring to front/back).

You could use the Form.Paint event, to draw ellipses, using the Graphics class instance that you get from the Paint event arguments.
