Binding form location with application settings

In VB2008 Express, I've added an application setting for MainFormLocation and in the form's application settings I've bound the location to MainFormLocation as described at http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/programming-and-development/?p=540
However, although the form loads at the co-ordinates set in the application settings MainFormLocation x/y settings, if I move the form and close it then the x/y settings don't save and change.

Any ideas please?

You'll have to handle the LocationChanged event, then just update & save the settings
Private Sub Form_LocationChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    My.Settings.Default.MainFormLocation = Me.Location
    My.Settings.Default.Save()
End Sub

Sorry, it's a little different from C#. I don't think Default is needed
    Private Sub Form1_LocationChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.LocationChanged
        My.Settings.MainFormLocation = Me.Location
        My.Settings.Save()
    End Sub
