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?
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Visual_Basic/Q_21111443.html

If so, then is this what you are after?

Option Explicit

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

Private Sub Form_Load()
    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
