Seems I am unable to get SetCapture to work with vb 2003.

"'hwnd' is not a member of 'WindowsApplication1.Form1'.
*****************************************************************

Private Declare Function SetCapture Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long
    Private Declare Function GetCapture Lib "user32" () As Long
    Private Declare Function ReleaseCapture Lib "user32" () As Long
    Private Declare Sub mouse_event Lib "user32.dll" (ByVal dwFlags As Long, ByVal dx As Long, ByVal dy As Long, ByVal cButtons As Long, ByVal dwExtraInfo As Long)
    Const MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN = &H2

    Private Sub Form_Activate()
        Print("Left-Click to SetCapture")
        Print("Right-Click to ReleaseCapture")
    End Sub

    Private Sub Form_MouseUp(ByVal Button As Integer, ByVal Shift As Integer, ByVal X As Single, ByVal Y As Single)
        If Button = 1 Then
            If GetCapture <> Me.hwnd Then SetCapture(Me.hwnd)
            ' Press and then *do not* release the left mouse button.
            mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN, 0, 0, 0, 0)
        Else
            ReleaseCapture()
        End If
    End Sub

End Class

All of your declarations are for VB6...

Change "Long" to "Integer" in all cases.

You can use "IntPtr" for vars declared as hWnd if you want.

Changed all Long datatypes to Integer.  

    Private Sub Form_Mousedown(ByVal Button As Integer, ByVal Shift As Integer, ByVal X As Single, ByVal Y As Single)
        GetCapture()
        MsgBox(GetCapture().ToString)
        If Button = 1 Then
            If GetCapture <> Me.intptr Then SetCapture(Me.intptr)<----Still have issues with this section******
             Press and then *do not* release the left mouse button.
            mouse_event(MOUSEEVENTF_LEFTDOWN, 0, 0, 0, 0)
        Else
            ReleaseCapture()
            Beep()
        End If
    End Sub
