From a post from the VB.NET mailing list at Yahoo:
I want my windows form to draw a line automatically when the form loads. To do this i am trying the following code:
Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
Dim g As Graphics = Me.CreateGraphics
g.DrawLine(SystemPens.ControlDarkDark, 10, 10, 50, 100)
but the line is not seen on the form! This code runs perfectly fine if i put it behind a button or other events but not on form loading. What should i do to make a line appear on form load?
I think there are still quite a few lessons to learn from asp.net programming.
In other news, be careful what news aggregator you use!! I tried and like RSS Reader. It's freeware, it's in .NET (just neat to see a useful client app in the new tech), and it does a great job parsing RSS feeds.
The problem? It uses the infamous MS Internet Control, which means it's just as vulnerable to security flaws in Internet Explorer as IE itself. That's a bad place to put your eggs, if you ask me. I've been complaining recently that end users need to be better educated about the risks of using a computer online -- this is a nasty sort of backdoor for virii. An app that looks totally unrelated to IE to the typical end user -- even one using Mozilla or Netscape for daily browsing -- can cut loose a nasty virus. Naturally, you'd hope the RSS feeding sites would be more likely to be on the up and up than your daily pr0n sites, but it's still a gaping hole that could blindside even a relatively well-informed PC user.
The answer? Well, luckily that's easy. Wrap the Mozilla ActiveX control I mentioned yesterday in a .NET wrapper (or just use COM-interop if you don't mind rewriting a bit of your .NET code), and stick a safe(er) rendering engine in your app.
