Using the AnimateWindow API to display a Form.  This works, but the Form position is random.

I have tried this, but the position still seems to be random:

Dim f2 As New Form2
        f2.Left = 600
        f2.Top = 600
        AnimateWindow(f2.Handle, 300, AnimateWindowFlags.AW_VER_NEGATIVE Or AnimateWindowFlags.AW_CENTER)
        f2.Show()

Thanks for any ideas.

Dim f2 As New Form2
f2.StartPosition =FormStartPosition.Manual
        f2.Left = 600
        f2.Top = 600
        AnimateWindow(f2.Handle, 300, AnimateWindowFlags.AW_VER_NEGATIVE Or AnimateWindowFlags.AW_CENTER)
        f2.Show()
