     Final Updated Program to make Diagonal Squares Patterns. I ended up making an animated gif to illustrate the differences in recursion levels and also showing some of the the pattern types. One can make a whole range of different patterns. I fixed up the level bug, the extra diagonal line bug on the picturebox and the colour selection descriptions. I also added a pattern selection section. I hope you enjoy my creation. Smiles everyone!

Bug alert ... Just realized the left and right side colours are in the opposite order (after looking at the screen capture). Apologizes for the small bug.

No more bugs. Hope you like the update. Hopefully the final version now.

Ah I was wrong with the bugs. I have fixed the extra diagonal line at the left top corner (added at last recursive call). There is also a bug with the level number not corresponding to the shape size and also with the colour picker descriptions. I will not update these fixes yet, until everything is ironed out. Apologies for the stuff up. My bad!
