collision detection in c#

in panel1; an arrayList or some object to keep track of the image and it's position. if the user drop an
image on top of another image, the is a messegeBox that shows."there is a preexisting image in the
desire location, do you wich to delete the preexisting image; Yes or No". if yes, the old image is deleted
and the new image is place at that location. if No, the old image remains. you can't put a pictureBox on
the top of another in the drop area.

this the program;  you insert pictureBoxs in panel2 and load them with image. you can drag and drop the
image in panel1

Try this:

private bool PictureBoxHitTest(PictureBox pb1)
{
  foreach (Control ctl in panel2.Controls)
  {
    if (ctl.GetType() == typeof(PictureBox))
     {
        pb2 = (PictureBox)ctl;
        if (pb.ClientRectangle.IntersectsWith(pb2.ClientRectangle))
          return true;
     }
  }
  return false;
}

this program only drag and drop, i want it to also do collision detection.

I want the program to  also do this ( in panel1; an arrayList or some object to keep track of the image and it's position. if the user drop an image on top of another image, the is a messegeBox that shows."there is a preexisting image in the desire location, do you wich to delete the preexisting image; Yes or No". if yes, the old image is deleted and the new image is place at that location. if No, the old image remains. you can't put a pictureBox on the top of another in the drop area)

Bob LearnedCommented:
You have the tools, you just need to put them together:

pb.ClientRectangle.IntersectsWith(panel1.ClientRectangle)

Loop through the controls for the panel, and determine if any of the controls are PictureBox, and the if the PictureBox control intersects with the rectangle referenced by 'pb'.

Untested attempt:

private bool PictureBoxHitTest(PictureBox pb1)
{
  foreach (Control ctl in panel2.Controls)
  {
     if (typeof(ctl) == typeof(PictureBox))
     {
        pb2 = (PictureBox)ctl;
        if (pb.ClientRectangle.IntersectsWith(pb2.ClientRectangle))

there is one error on the commented line;
Error: The type or namespace name 'ctl' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)      
private bool PictureBoxHitTest(PictureBox pb1)
{
  foreach (Control ctl in panel2.Controls)
