    BrickStyle bStyle = new BrickStyle(BorderSide.Bottom, 2, Color.Gold, Color.Navy,
        Color.DodgerBlue, new DXFont("Arial", 14, DXFontStyle.Bold | DXFontStyle.Italic),

    // Create bricks.
    brickGraph.Modifier = BrickModifier.Detail;
    visBrick = brickGraph.DrawString(s, new RectangleF(0, 0, 250, 40));
    visBrick = brickGraph.DrawString(s, new RectangleF(0, 40, 250, 40));
