I trap mouse moves on a form so a can select a range of control array textboxs. However when I use a commondialog box to open a file the mousemove event is still trapping mouse moves which causes problems when I close the Dialog Box.
Is there any way to disable the mousemove event when I open a dialog box?

Hi DennisKeeling,

just use removehandler,

something like this

Private Sub ron(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs)
        MsgBox("hello")
    End Sub

AddHandler Me.MouseDown, AddressOf ron         ' to add the mousedown handler
RemoveHandler Me.MouseDown, AddressOf ron   ' to remove the mousedown handler

I can't reproduce your problem:

    Private Sub Form1_MouseMove(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles MyBase.MouseMove
        Label1.Text = e.X & ", " & e.Y
    End Sub

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        OpenFileDialog1.ShowDialog()
    End Sub

When the dialog is open, passing my mouse over the form does not result in the coordinates updating in the label.  Could you explain a little more how your app is setup?
