Could you paste the code you are using? WE can't really help you with this if we don't know what kind of structure you use to draw the table.

private void Form1_MouseMove(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs e)
                  Graphics g = CreateGraphics();
                  Pen PnDises = new Pen( Color.Black, 1 );
                  g.DrawRectangle(PnDises, e.X,e.Y,50,50);
                  panel1.BackColor = Color.Transparent;
                  panel1.Left = Cursor.Position.X;
                  panel1.Top = Cursor.Position.Y;


in each time i move the mouse it draw a square but i want this square to move with the muse pointer
Correction, it is the same question from the same person.
How are you doing the drawing? Drawing the table in onpaint event? or just onload?  how are you drawing the item under the mouse cursor, via mousemove event?  Are you doing any invalidation of the drawing space?  Do you have autoredraw set to true for the form properties?

Are you maybe trying to change the color only behind lines you have drawn on the form? if thats the case you need to redraw the lines after you draw the square.  Draw your table in the onpaint event perhaps.
