Moving Borderless Forms or Controls in NT

Moving Borderless Forms or Controls in NT

Moving Borderless Forms or Controls in NT

Many of you may be aware of using the API to move objects with a handle by using ReleaseCapture() and SendMessage() or some variation to simulate clicking on the Forms Title Bar. However this works fine in 95 but not in NT4.0, does anybody have a solution ? I've tried looking in MSDN but so far havent come up with anything

RE: Moving Borderless Forms or Controls in NT

I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to do. If you are just moving the object, then wouldn't a simple Frame.Move Left, Top do? Or am I misunderstanding?

RE: Moving Borderless Forms or Controls in NT

I'm trying to recreate the TitleBar on a VB Form. That way I can move a title-less Form, the same approach can be used to drag controls that have a Handle around the window. All the MSDN and other Peoples Tips work fine for 95 but doent work in NT.
