here is the problem
I am trying to move label from location to another on a form in runtime by using mousedown and mousemove events but the problem is when the mouse goes over a control on the form while moving the label I lost the actual form.mouse(x,y),,,, in another meaning it becomes the x,y of that control.
I have alote of controls on the form so it is hard to write mousemove event for each one.
my Question is how to keep this label stick to mouse whatever the control under mouse or how to get the actual form x,y.
regards

You have to create an api hook and on WM_MOUSEMOVE message use GetCursorPos to extract the position of the cursor relative to the screen.

I wrote this code and works fine:


Dim MouseD As Boolean
Dim curX As Integer
Dim curY As Integer

Private Sub label1_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
   MouseD = True
   curX = Label1.Left
   curY = Label1.Top
End Sub

Private Sub label1_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
   If MouseD = True Then
      X = curX + X
      Y = curY + Y
      Label1.Move X, Y
      Label2.Caption = X
      Label3.Caption = Y
      curX = X
      curY = Y
      Label1.Refresh
   End If
End Sub

Private Sub label1_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
   MouseD = False
End Sub

Option Explicit

Private mouseDown As Boolean
Private startX As Single, startY As Single

Private Sub Label1_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
    If Button = vbLeftButton Then
        startX = X
        startY = Y
        mouseDown = True
    End If
End Sub

Private Sub Label1_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
    If Button = vbLeftButton And mouseDown Then
        Label1.Move Label1.Left + X - startX, Label1.Top + Y - startY
    End If
End Sub

Private Sub Label1_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
    If Button = vbLeftButton And mouseDown Then
        mouseDown = False
    End If
End Sub
