    Multiple Floating images in picturebox

    I have tried several ways of doing this, but to no avail so my questions are as follows:
    1. Is it possible to have more than one image simultaneously displayed in a picturebox component?
    2. Is it possible to have these images floating? What I mean is can one make it such that the user can move/re-arrange these images in the picturebox by dragging them with the mouse?
    3. If not, any idea what component would be suitable to this kind of operation?

    I am using Visual Studio 2005 (VB.Net)

    As far as I know, a PictureBox supports only one image at a time. You could have several PictureBoxes on a Form and allow the user to drag them, but that could become rather resource-intensive. Instead, I recommend that you evaluate some third-party .NET diagramming components: http://www.google.com/search?q=.net+diagram+component
