Specify mouse coordinates

Specify mouse coordinates

hi all
in my form i have a control(Image).i want the code to make the left or top of this control as my mouse(left or top) in this that?

RE: Specify mouse coordinates

Do you mean, you want the top and left of the image control to appear under the mouse pointer? You mention left or top? Can you explain what you're trying to accomplish, because this doesn't make much sense to me...

RE: Specify mouse coordinates

The get the mouse coordinates put this in the mousemove event of the form:

RE: Specify mouse coordinates

yes. now every thing is ok.
thank you very very much dear "Mike Gagnon".

RE: Specify mouse coordinates

But if the idea is to let the use move a picture on a form, I would recommend using Drag and Drop instead. Because with the mousemove event it will trigger anytime the user clicks on the form and may become frustrating to the user.

RE: Specify mouse coordinates

I agree with Mike G about drag-and-drop. But if you really want to move the image to the current mouse co-ordinates, you can do so like this:

CODE -->

* In the form's MouseMove event
LPARAMETERS nButton, nShift, nXCoord, nYCoord
THISFORM.MyImage.Move(nXCoord, nYCoord) 

But the effect will be weird. Asa the user moves the mouse around the form, the image will simply follow it - except when the mouse moves over another control within the form. Also, there will be no way to "release" this behaviour, that is, the user won't be able to "drop" the image at its new position. Nor will they easily be able to interact with other controls on the form. Is that really what you want?

Sorry for the delay in reply.
Yes, that's exactly what I want specifically.
I am also completely convinced with your Opinion.
