The following code enabled moving you mouse by clicking and dragging the form somewhere - useful for non-title-forms...

I think the BorderStyle Property can't be changed at runtime - no news for you...

' put that into a module
'--------------module-code-------------------------------
Declare Function ReleaseCapture Lib "User32" () As Long
Declare Function SendMessage Lib "User32" Alias "SendMessageA" (ByVal hWnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, lParam As Any) As Long
Public Const WM_NCLBUTTONDOWN = &HA1
Public Const HTCAPTION = 2
'--------------------------------------------------------

'put this into you form's mousemove
'--------------Form_MouseMove-Code-----------------------
 If Button = vbLeftButton Then '< change to vbrightbutton if you want to use right mouse button
    ReleaseCapture
    SendMessage Me.hWnd, WM_NCLBUTTONDOWN, HTCAPTION, 0
  End If
'--------------------------------------------------------
