I'm capturing the X and Y positions of the mouse click in a Panel, and it works fine unless I click on a control inside that panel.  What I want is to know the location of the clicking inside the panel even if I clicked on a control (the control is a custom one, if this adds anything).

Assuming there is a control ctl1 inside the Panel pan1
In the design mode of the control, double click the control ctl1


Event MouseDown(...)
...
Private Sub ct1_MouseDown(..., Byval X as Integer, ByVal Y as Integer)

   RaiseEvent MouseDown(..., X + ctl1.Left, Y + ctl1.Top) ' add the left and top of the control to give X and Y relative to the control.

End Sub
