    Re: How to arrange bit side by side

    Sounds more like steganogrpaphy to me, where ashisbiswas is encoding a character with bit pattern 00010000 into the least significant bits of a pixels RGB components.

    Re: New to Charts and need help.

    Have you looked at the Cursor Class?

    It might not work exactly as you are hoping, but worth checking out. You could call its SetCursorPixelPosition method from the chart's MouseMove event handler.
