Methods to draw custom-made graphical plots on ASP net/pages RRS feed

  • Question

  • User672068081 posted


    We are new to ASP, but have installed VB.net 2008 in our desktop to learn it. We used methods of Scale, Pset and Line and made subroutine calls to draw this engineering graph with VB6 (http://www.msfmaker08.com/index_files/image014.jpg) .

    Question, what methods are available in ASP to be able to draw the same graph? If there are weblinks/addresses that show relevant examples, please do tell.

    Hi razi346,


    If you are asking how to use VB.NET to draw graphics instead of VB6, then you can check this migration documentation:


    Conceptual Differences

    In Visual Basic 6.0, graphics methods apply only to the Form object and to the PictureBox control.

    In Visual Basic 2008, graphics methods apply to forms, plus any control that supports the Paint event, including the PictureBoxPanel, and GroupBox controls. Additionally, graphics methods apply to any controls that support the OwnerDraw property, including the ListViewTreeView, and Button controls.


    However, if you ask "what methods are available in ASP to be able to draw the same graph", you should understand what is ASP.NET first.

    • .NET is a developer platform made up of tools, programming languages, and libraries for building many different types of applications.
    • ASP.NET extends the .NET developer platform with tools and libraries specifically for building web apps.

    You are able to draw picture in .NET but when it comes to ASP.NET, it focuses on web (html).


    Hope helps.

    Best regards,
