    By itself, VML sucks. But when used in conjunction with a programming language -- its gold.

    well if you were controling it with scripts maybe, but it is such a huge pain in the butt if you are messing with the code yourself. What is it useful for anyway, because it sure is not accessable. When would be a good time to use it? I can't think of an instance. Maybe for dynamic graphs, but why would you use that when you have built in drawing in asp.net php and I am sure there is a free component for it in asp classic if it is not built into that too.

    I'm programming a Hotspot Editor for the web (with asp and javascript). So I have to draw dynamic.

    Buntine, were you talking about VML or ShotGraph?

    VML is dead: PGML and VML together makes SVG. PGML and VML were concepts. W3C was looking for a XML based vector graphic language. They took the best from PGML, the best from VML and there was SVG

    So... What about ShotGraph ?
    Can someone tell me the (dis)advantages of it. And what about 'SoftArtisans ImgWriter'?

    I was referring to VML.

    I have had no experience with ShotGraph, so im of no service there.

    Regards.

    jeese another person who puts asp and java script together as part of the thing. Java script is unrelated to asp, and it has no hand in the drawing process.

    NO NO NO!!!
    What I meant to say: ASP serverside, JavaScript clientside...
    I know ASP != JavaScript and Java != JavaScript...
    I use VBScript in the ASP (Yes I know ASP isn't a programming language/script).

    Sorry for confusing...
