    // Create pen.
    Pen blackPen = new Pen(Color.Black, 3);
             
    // Create points that define line.
    Point point1 = new Point(100, 100);
    Point point2 = new Point(500, 100);
             
    // Draw line to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawLine(blackPen, point1, point2);
}

public void DrawLinePoint(PaintEventArgs e) 
{
    // Create pen.
    Pen blackPen =  new Pen(Color.get_Black(), 3);
