I'm working on a designer editor where you can drop components and size and move them. The only but is
that I want to do this visuallly.

I already tried various options

1. Overriding windowproc of control dropped
2. Made a customcontrol (transparent) with same
    dimensions as control dropped.
3. Tried to make a bitmap of the component but for
    some reason non visual components cannot be
    copied to a bitmap.
4. The last method I'm still working of it works a bit
    but it is not what I want. I have a designerform
    with has a mousedown, mouseup and mousemove
    I also use the same method 2 for making the object
   clickable without activating it. And let the designerform
   handle the moving functions.

Shorthly I'm creating a designer ala delphi visual basic and I can't seem it to make it work the way I want.

Can someone help me out with some kind of source, the
most easy way is to create bitmaps of the controls however the controls are none visual.

Regards,

Ronald
