How do I set the Form startposition to upper right corner

Basically I want to set the form start position so that the form starts in the upper right corner of the screen.  I imagine that I need to retrieve resolution information to do this?  Anyhow I guess I'd probably just (x resoulution - form1.width) = startposition(x).  Also can you setposition onload? I'm away from the project atm or I'd check out this question myself.

Thanks for your time,
Matt

Yes. You can set the position at load:

Use the Screen object to get info about the screen:

Me.Location.X = Screen.PrimaryScreen.WorkingArea.Right - Me.Width
Me.Location.Y = 0

Thanks for the response. Just about there..
I'm getting this error on the Me.Location.X and Y:
Expression is a value and therefore cannot be the target of an assignment.
do i need to use setposition(x, y)?

Try

Me.SetDesktopLocation(Screen.PrimaryScreen.WorkingArea.Right - Me.Width, 0)

Me.Location = New Drawing.Point(Screen.PrimaryScreen.WorkingArea.Right - Me.Width, 0)
Works Perfectly!
