    mschart flickering

    I am programming an application using Visual Studio .NET - visual basic - and I am using the MSChart control to plot a graph in 'real-time'... as many before me have encountered, the graph flickers every time a new value is added to the array. Apparently this has to do with erasing the background on the control & needing to override this method. Does anyone know how to fix this? (please bear in mind that I am no programming guru!!)
    Any help is appreciated..

    I have done similar things.

    I used GDI+ instead of MSChart.

    two reasons:
    1. speed
    I found that MSChart is slow (probably because it is TOO good that it draws many different graphic)

    2. Compatibility
    MSChart is not a .Net control, I found it buggy when I try to use it. (or maybe just because I've done something wrong...)

    If I am a dummy, then GDI+ must be more dummy prove than MSChart.
