Hi
I have a toolbar and a gridview on a form with the toolbar located at the top of the form and I am attempting to change the location of a gridview to place its top below the toolbar using

Me.QuoteGridView.Location = New System.Drawing.Point(0, 22)

but the gridview location doe's not change, can anyone spot the reason why?

Regards
Joe

Can you clarify the full data type of the QuoteGridView variable, as there are several GridView classes in the .NET framework.

Hi Woodz

The QuoteGridView is a System.windows.Forms.datagridview

The command that you are using is correct for the task intended, so the problem could be caused by the location of this command. I have tested it with the command in the winform constructor, which is invoked before the screen is displayed, so the location value is correctly set before the screen is drawn.

If you are setting the location after it has been drawn, it may not take alter the position until the screen is refreshed, which you can force by calling Me.Refresh(). Alternatively, if you set the .Anchor or .Dock properties, this could override the explicit location setting.

Hi Woodz

With the dock removed the code works fine!
