sample code

You would need to do something like this :

	public override void Plot(Graphics graphics, Rectangle bounds, double min, double max)
					Brush backBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.FromArgb(backgroundOpacity, backgroundColor));
					graphics.FillRectangle(backBrush, xOffset, yOffset, longestLine, totalHeight);
					Pen borderPen = new Pen(borderColor);
					graphics.DrawRectangle(borderPen, xOffset, yOffset, longestLine, totalHeight);
It is not a working sample, you need to replace the colors and the coordinates
( extract taken from jtEconNews2.cs ), but should give you a clear idea how to do
