Default how to prevent image flickering?

Hi all,

I have a picturebox (with scrollbars) in my form.
I use the following code:
Graphics g = picBox.CreateGraphics();
g.DrawImage(picBox.Image, new Rectangle(0, 0, picPolicy.ClientSize.Width,
    new Rectangle(hScrollBar.Value, vScrollBar.Value,
//draws a rectangle to highlight a specified area
g.FillRectangle(brush, rect.Left - hScrollBar.Value, rect.Top - vScrollBar.Value, (rect.Right - rect.Left), (rect.Botom - rect.Top));
When I'm scrolling the drawn image it flickers too match.
Is there are any way to prevent flickering?

there is an idea I used to use it in the animations, but I don't know if it's applicable in your case, you have to work it out.
In the C++ under DOS there were 4 virtual screens for graphics drawing, and while only one screen is visible at a time; you can draw on the other screens and then show them in turn, and that prevents flickering. In a windows application I was trying to make a file manager and was reading the files in the chosen folder to a list box, and I faced a similar problem; when I view the files of a folder like 'windows\system' which has a large number of files, the list box disappears for seconds till the program reads the files and then reappear, I overcame that problem by creating two identical listboxes on the same location and read the files to the hidden list box and then bring it on the top, and that also vanishes the problem, I don't know if you can apply the same idea or not, it's just an idea, good luck and best wishes :)
