Hello

I want to move several buttons on a panel. Thats working correctly.
But while moving I want to check if on the new place, there is alreasy a button.
I am using Mousemove, so it should check at every mousemove event, if the button I want to move will be on the top of another button...

How can I do that?

Thanks

Sven

If you are moving Button1, and want to check if it is over Button2, you could use:

If Button1.ClientRectangle.IntersectsWith(Button2.ClientRectangle) Then
....
End If

This checks the whole of the Button1 rectangle to see if any point in it overlaps Button2's area

Thanks.
I will have 40 controls, 20 buttons and 20 picturebox. Is it possible to check for all other 39 controls very fast?

Sorry - change ClientRectangle to Bounds, so:

If Button1.Bounds.IntersectsWith(Button2.Bounds) Then
....
End If

My mistake...

This should work:

        For Each myControl As Control In Me.Controls
            If TypeOf (myControl) Is Button Then
                If Button1.Bounds.IntersectsWith(myControl.Bounds) Then
                    ......
                End If
            End If
        Next
