i would like the user to be able to draw random size of dots when the user click on a picture box (something like the spray function in Paint)... the random size of dots should be different sizes of circles...how to do that?

Create a form Form1 with one PictureBox and one Timer and try this code:

Option Explicit

Private x0 As Integer, y0 As Integer

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Randomize Timer
End Sub

Private Sub Picture1_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
    Picture1_MouseMove Button, Shift, X, Y
End Sub

Private Sub Picture1_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)

    If Button = 1 Then
        x0 = X
        y0 = Y
        Picture1.FillStyle = vbFSSolid
        Timer1.Enabled = True
        Timer1.Interval = 10
    End If
   
End Sub

Private Sub Picture1_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
    Timer1.Enabled = False
End Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    Picture1.Circle (x0 + CInt(Rnd * 200) - 100, y0 + CInt(Rnd * 200) - 100), CInt(Rnd * 100)
End Sub

In Form_Load:
Randomize Timer
In _MouseDown put:
Picture1.Circle X, Y, CInt(Rnd*10)

what i wanted is on mouse_down, it will draw a few circles or dots of different sizes at one time and the dots are near each other.

i want the dots to be solid type (the whole circle is black, for example) and not with the circle in the middle...

Set the .FillColor to the color you want it to be filled with, and then In _MouseDown put:
Picture1.Circle X, Y, CInt(Rnd*10), Picture1.FillColor

Picture1.Circle X-5+cint(rnd*10), Y-5+cint(rnd*10), CInt(Rnd*10), Picture1.FillColor

This does not do something like the spray function in Paint...

i want the dots to be drawn on mouse click and not on mouse down...
and the dots that are to be drawn should appear around the mouse cursor and not anywhere in the picture box...

You could customize the code as you want it...

My code draw filled circles with random radius (from 0 to 10)
at a random position into a rectangle centered on the mouse (the size of the rectangle is 200).

My picture as width and height = 1500

In Paintbrush, the spray draw continuously (every 10ms) between the mousedown and the mouseup. That is not what you want ?

The MouseClick event is fired after the MouseDown and MouseUp events. So if you start to draw on MouseClick, when do you STOP to draw circles ???

Can't you change the code as follow by yourself...?

Option Explicit

Private x0 As Integer, y0 As Integer

Private Const pi = 3.141592

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Randomize Timer
End Sub

Private Sub Picture1_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
    If Button = 1 Then
        x0 = X
        y0 = Y
        Picture1.FillStyle = vbFSSolid
        Timer1.Enabled = True
        Timer1.Interval = 10
    End If
End Sub

Private Sub Picture1_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
    Timer1.Enabled = False
End Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
    'Draw random circle into a circle
    Dim a As Double
   
    a = Rnd * 2 * pi
    Picture1.Circle (x0 + CInt(200 * Rnd * Cos(a)), y0 + CInt(200 * Rnd * Sin(a))), CInt(Rnd * 50)
End Sub
