Hi.. I have a problem about the coordinates of the form. I  draw boxes which made of line objects. Every box is 5x5. When user click on them box fill with a red color. And I get the coordinates of the boxes when user click on them.  But when I change the size of the boxes from 5x5 to 8x8, coordinates doenst match the bigger boxes. I couldnt find any any mathematical formula that gives me the new coordinates. Does any one have the same problem?

Important information is Left and Top of the box, and size (e.g. 5 or 8)

can you post some code that makes you problem?

Are you trying to modify one of you PAQs?

If so, then is this what you are after?

Option Explicit

Private Const boxWidth = 8 ' <--- Just change the value here

Me.AutoRedraw = True
Me.ScaleMode = vbPixels

For i = 1 To Me.Width Step boxWidth
Me.Line (0, i)-(Me.Width, i), , BF
Next i
For i = 1 To Me.Height Step boxWidth
Me.Line (i, 1)-(i, Me.Height), , BF
Next i
End Sub

Private Sub Form_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
Dim cX As Integer, cY As Integer
Dim tmpX As Integer, tmpY As Integer

tmpX = Int(X / boxWidth) * boxWidth
tmpY = Int(Y / boxWidth) * boxWidth

cX = tmpX
cY = tmpY

Me.Line (cX, cY)-(cX + boxWidth, cY + boxWidth), vbRed, BF
End Sub
