Hello together

What I want to do is this:

If I press on label1 and hold left mouse button down and then I move the mouse, the label should follow the mouse...

How can I do this?

Thanks sooo much

Sven

Based on your question history, I'm assuming you want this in VB.Net.

Here is one way to do it:

Public Class Form1
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

#Region " Windows Form Designer generated code "

    Public Sub New()
        MyBase.New()

        'This call is required by the Windows Form Designer.
        InitializeComponent()

        'Add any initialization after the InitializeComponent() call

    End Sub

    'Form overrides dispose to clean up the component list.
    Protected Overloads Overrides Sub Dispose(ByVal disposing As Boolean)
        If disposing Then
            If Not (components Is Nothing) Then
                components.Dispose()
            End If
        End If
        MyBase.Dispose(disposing)
    End Sub

    'Required by the Windows Form Designer
    Private components As System.ComponentModel.IContainer

    'NOTE: The following procedure is required by the Windows Form Designer
    'It can be modified using the Windows Form Designer.  
    'Do not modify it using the code editor.
    Friend WithEvents Label1 As System.Windows.Forms.Label
    <System.Diagnostics.DebuggerStepThrough()> Private Sub InitializeComponent()
        Me.Label1 = New System.Windows.Forms.Label
        Me.SuspendLayout()
        '
        'Label1
        '
        Me.Label1.BorderStyle = System.Windows.Forms.BorderStyle.FixedSingle
        Me.Label1.Location = New System.Drawing.Point(104, 128)
        Me.Label1.Name = "Label1"
        Me.Label1.Size = New System.Drawing.Size(88, 24)
        Me.Label1.TabIndex = 0
        Me.Label1.Text = "Label1"
        Me.Label1.TextAlign = System.Drawing.ContentAlignment.MiddleCenter
        '
        'Form1
        '
        Me.AutoScaleBaseSize = New System.Drawing.Size(5, 13)
        Me.ClientSize = New System.Drawing.Size(344, 278)
        Me.Controls.Add(Me.Label1)
        Me.Name = "Form1"
        Me.Text = "Form1"
        Me.ResumeLayout(False)

    End Sub

#End Region

    Private startX As Integer
    Private startY As Integer

    Private Sub Label1_MouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles Label1.MouseDown
        If e.Button = MouseButtons.Left Then
            startX = e.X
            startY = e.Y
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub Label1_MouseMove(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles Label1.MouseMove
        If e.Button = MouseButtons.Left Then
            Label1.Location = New Point(Label1.Left + e.X - startX, Label1.Top + e.Y - startY)
        End If
    End Sub

End Class
