Hi,

I’m using VS.NET 2005.  I have a command button called btnEnter.  I need to place the btnEnter at different x and y form locations based on certain events.  How would I write this in code?  I would like the button to be at the following location:

X=429
Y=17

The following code did not work:

Me.btnEnter.Location.X = "429"
Me.btnEnter.Location.Y=”17

Thanks,
Denise

Hi DeniseGoodheart,

Use:

        Me.btnEnter.Top = 17
        Me.btnEnter.Left = 429

Assuming your x and y work from the top left?

Cheers,
