Hi all :)

I'm having a few problems with this assignment I'm working on. Its a Java - C# conversion of a Mandelbrot program.

What I'm trying to do, is draw the Mandelbrot to a Bitmap, and then print it onto the Windows form. So far I've been able to just draw aqua lines on the bitmap/ellipses etc if I've wanted too, I just can't seem to get the mandelbrot on there!

Code is here:

this.b = Math.Min(Math.Max(b, 0), 255);

}
```

Now that code will just produce an Aqua box, which was a test I put in to see if I'm writing to the bitmap.

Also: Some of the variables aren't being used yet, there's some extra functionality I need to add once I have this working!

I found this Mandelbrot method online, it helps by converting the colours (I'm British, that's how we spell color :P) So they work, I just can't get it to write to the Bitmap.

```
private void mandelbrot() // calculate all points
{
int x, y;
float h, b, alt = 0.0f;
action = false;
for (x = 0; x < x1; x += 2)
for (y = 0; y < y1; y++)
{
h = pointcolour(xstart + xzoom * (double)x, ystart + yzoom * (double)y); // color value
if (h != alt)
{
b = 1.0f - h * h; // brightnes
Color color = HSBColor.FromHSB(new HSBColor(h * 255, 0.8f * 255, b * 255)); // VERY IMPORTANT
//djm
alt = h;
Pen pen = new Pen(color);
g1.DrawLine(pen, x, y, x + 1, y);
}
}
action = true;
}
```

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get this Mandelbrot onto my Bitmap?
