bobhshaw,
Try this, let me know if you have any questions.

In the form's general declaration area, add:

  Private Declare Function SetCapture Lib "user32" (ByVal hWnd As Long) As Long
  Private Declare Function ReleaseCapture Lib "user32" () As Long

In the MouseMove Event of the control, add

Dim MouseOver As Boolean
' See if the mouse is over
MouseOver = (0 <= X) And (X <= Command2.Width) And (0 <= Y) And (Y <= Command2.Height)

If MouseOver Then
 MouseOver is true
        ' Do something
        SetCapture Command2.hWnd
  Else
   ' Mouse Left
         'Do something else
         ReleaseCapture
 End If
