Creating a scrolling graph in VB.NET

I need to make a scrolling graph, similar to a strip chart recorder, in VB.NET. I know .NET doesn't supply a graph object and I've played with the graphics trying to draw one... but in order to get it to scroll, I have to repaint and that makes the display flicker. Is there any way to do this without the flicker? Or should I be looking at Labview? Thanks.
You should be able to place your graphic on a scrollable panel and scroll the panel. This should remove the flicker and allow the user to display parts of the graph after it has scrolled out of view.
