Hi.

I'm working with a Form from one of Wrox Publishing's books. I need to add more controls to it.
For reasons unknown to me, I can't move the controls around on this Form.

What property on the Form is set to "lock" these controls in their places?

I dont know what Wrox Publishing's books is but, from the format menu > Lock Controls will do this.

When you are in design mode, simply right click on the form then select lock controls. (You can unlock them like that too.)

You can also "move" the controls by changing their left and top properties, although the graphical interface is obviously much easier.

It was nearly as "plain as the nose on my face"!
