FoxWeb scripts ARE FoxPro programs, so they should be able to access any DLL functions that other FoxPro programs can.  Have you actually created graphs from your FoxPro programs?  If yes, then try the exact same code in your scripts.  Start by disabling the Run as Service option, because this can complicate things initially, plus it will prevent you from seeing any dialog popups in your channel windows.  Once you get your scripts running you can re-enable the option.

I'm compiling the PNG library (and zLib) into a DLL file.  This is where I'm getting stuck.  I can get FoxPro programs to recognize the functions in the DLL but FoxWeb can't seem to see them

When you say you want to make use of a compiled library from FoxPro, are you referring to an FLL or a DLL? If so, that shouldn't be a problem, I am currently using an FLL for NetWare network access in a production FoxWeb system. I haven't needed to yet, but you should also be able to call a DLL function from a FoxWeb script as well.
