Can't Trap MouseMove / MouseDown event

saikit asked
Last Modified: 2008-03-10
I'm learning to write a screen saver, this screen saver has some label controls and image controls on the form of the main screen.

I use Form_Keydown, Form_KeyPress, Form_MouseDown and Form_MouseMove events to trap the repsond of user.

The Form_Keydown & Form_KeyPress events are work fine, however, when the mouse pointer is on the one of the controls (label or image), the Form_MouseDown and Form_MouseMove is no repsond for the mouse clicking or moving.

I think I can't make another MouseDown and MouseMove events (eg Image1_MouseMove) for the labels or image controls, because there may not only one label or image on the form.

How can I overcome it?

Thank for helping.
