I intend to make an application that like the visual studio has a set of controls on a toolbox and that we can dispose in a page.

I need to make an environment capable of producing and printing schematics of generic equipments and connections between them. The application has to be capable to print the schematics.

I would like to know you opinion of what is the best approach todo this. What kind of control to use as page background Panels Use of GDI or user controls

Are there any new controls from the .net 3.0 that can simplify this

Thanks in advance,

Hi, Alex

Acctually, it is a big question, and it is all about UI issues.

And here is some sample for .NET Framework3.0 features: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms756478.aspx

May be you can get better answer if you would be more specific.

Hope it helps.
