how can i place controls in the non-client area of a form
say i want to place a command button in the title bar or the menu bar
please dont suggest simulating a title/menu bar
i need it to be a form with a real title/menu bar because i use windows scrollbars and not vb scrollbars and i dont want the scrollbars to extent into the simulated title/menu bar

Put your form and your button inside another form, or into mdi client area, so they'll have common parent window.

or is there a way to limit the extend of the vertical scrollbar so it will not extend into the simulated titlebar of a form without a titlebar (windows scrollbars not vb scrollbars)

If you place Form1 inside parent borderless frmParent (no caption, no border)
and put button1 inside frmParent, you can position button over any part of Form1.

I'm not saying that is good, but that is one way to have control over non-client area.
