I am trying to center a groupbox within a panel... what isn't right in this code?


// Center horizontally.
this.grpLogin.Left = (this.panel1.Width - this.grpLogin.Width) \ 2;

// Center vertically.
this.grpLogin.Top = (this.panel1.Height - this.grpLogin.Height) \ 2;

Try this way instead:
// Center horizontally.
this.grpLogin.Left = (this.panel1.Width - this.grpLogin.Width) / 2;
 
// Center vertically.
this.grpLogin.Top = (this.panel1.Height - this.grpLogin.Height) / 2;
