add this to your form code :
        protected override void WndProc(ref Message m)
        {
            if ( m.Msg == 0x0084/*WM_NCHITTEST*/ )
                return;
            base.WndProc(ref m);
        }
hth,
A.

       const int WM_NCHITTEST = 0x84;
        const int HTCAPTION = 2;
        const int HTCLIENT = 1;

        protected override void WndProc(ref Message m)
        {
            base.WndProc(ref m);

            if (m.Msg == WM_NCHITTEST  && m.Result.ToInt32() == HTCAPTION)
                m.Result = new IntPtr(HTCLIENT);
        }

This prevents form from moving by mouse, but there is still other way to move form: right-click on title bar, select Move, and then it is possible to move form. Right now I don't know how to prevent this, I will think about this.

Agarici, your version prevents form from closing by clicking x button. However, if form doesn't have Close button, it is OK.
