How do I create a line (vertical) that follow the mouse over my form in a specific area? I also want it to run a function when it (the mouse) changes coordinates to update some text in the form.

Thanks!

Dim ht, wt As Integer

Private Sub Form_Load()
ht = Abs(Line1.Y1 - Line1.Y2)
wt = Abs(Line1.X1 - Line1.X2)
End Sub

Private Sub Form_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
Line1.X1 = X
Line1.Y1 = Y
Line1.X2 = Line1.X1 + wt
Line1.Y2 = Line1.Y1 + ht
'call your function here
End Sub
