Moving a VB window or VBA userform that doesn't have a title bar by taupirho
Posted: 29 Jun 04

A previous FAQ of mine shows how to remove the title bar from a userform or window. Great. But now you can't move the form/window ... or can you? Read on.

More API programming I'm afraid but the code is fairly short

Put the following code in the general declaration section

Private Declare Function ReleaseCapture Lib "user32" () As Long
Declare Function SendMessage Lib "user32" Alias "SendMessageA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, lParam As Any) As Long


Now in your form mousedown event for VB use:

Private sub form1_mousedown(ByVal Button As Integer,Byval Shift as integer,ByVal X as single,ByVal Y as Single)

Const WM_NCLBUTTONDOWN = &HA1
Const HTCAPTION= 2
CALL ReleaseCapture
CALL SendMessage(me.hwnd,WM_NCLBUTTONDOWN,HTCAPTION,0)

end sub


For VBA we have to obtain the hwnd of our userform to supply as the first parameter to SendMessage. Do this with the code below.

hwnd = IIF(val(application.version) < 9,"ThunderXframe","ThunderDFrame"), Userform1.caption)
