Graphics question

for cut and paste coders like me, the use of certain graphics functions (in C# not just NinjaScript) is like a "quantum leap" past where my current level of understanding is...

Here's a snippet start from the Murrey Math file (starting at around line #600 and goes on for approx. 100 lines) I'd like to place into a two or three line plotting indicator so I can learn how to use this advanced code.

publicoverridevoid Plot(Graphics graphics, Rectangle bounds, double min, double max)
if (Bars == null || ChartControl == null)
int barWidth = ChartControl.ChartStyle.GetBarPaintWidth(ChartControl.BarWidth);
for (int seriesCount = 0; seriesCount < Values.Length; seriesCount++)
SolidBrush brush = brushes[seriesCount];
Does anyone have a simplified template that you'd be willing to share? or a link on a C# tutorial that helps?

Not the most simple example, but MSDN:
SolidBrush Class (System.Drawing)
Graphics.DrawString Method (System.Drawing)


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
