I have a form that I want to format upon loading.

What i need is code to move textbox and label controls to certain xy positions on the form.

it may be so simple i just missed it, i tried

textbox.Location.X = myX1
textbox.Location.Y = myY1

but when build i get the following error:
"Expression is a value and therefore cannot be the target of an assignment."

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi EricJamesOlson,

try this, this will work

textbox.Style.Add("LEFT", "0px");
textbox.Style.Add("TOP", "0px");

Read my own post and thought i was kinda short, didn't mean to be.

Tks for your post SandeepPR, tried it but the Style is not a member of System.Windows.Forms.Textbox.

Hi,

Textbox1.location is good idea and/or simply set TOP and LEFT of Textbox and they will move to that position .....


Textbox1.Top = 230 / mousepoint.y
Textbox1.Left = 400 /mousepoint.x

see the Property listing in Visual studio for text box and set them as per your requirement .....
