Hello,

I would like to know if there is a way to identify a click or MouseDown event. I am making this question because MouseDown events is trigged before Click in Vb.net, but, MouseDown could be a "drag" event instead of click event. Is there a way to isolate both?

Thank you

You could start a timer on mousedown and end it on mouseup.
Then, specify that if time was shorter than X ( for expample 10ms) it was a click, and longer ( X > 10ms ) it was a Drag.

Karstieman,

I though to do that, but the problem is that Timer will depends on computer reaches IDLE and it can take more than "click time".

Hi jr_barros_jr;

From Microsoft documentation: Implementing Drag and Drop in Visual Basic .NET
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa289508(VS.71).aspx

The above shows how to keep track of the mouse down status.

From your previous post, "I can't use "GiveFeedback". How can I use it?", the two links show I posted show how to use it.
