Hi, Iv had to convert a program from Java to C#, I thought I had done it, but it doesnt work, and Im at a loose end because I cant figure out why it isnt working. Anyway, what it is is a Mandelbrot Set that Im trying to display in a picturebox, I am drawing the fractal to a bitmap then getting the picturebox to display the bitmap. If anyone can explain what Im doing wrong that would be great.
