location property on textbox control

I would like to use this sentence

for example:
                    "IF TEXTBOX1.LOCATION = (2,2) THEN"

I know that the sintaxis is not right,

I would like to know how to use the location property in a IF STATEMENT

hi himanshut

This is what I need to know to do.

"IF TEXTBOX1.LOCATION = POINT(X,Y) THEN"

I cannot use "IF TEXTBOX1.LOCATION.X=x AND TEXTBOX1.LOCATION.Y=y THEN"

You could also write it this way:
If TextBox1.Location.Equals(New Point(2, 2)) Then

Open in new window

No problem...just FYI, you can use Equals() in your example too:

    Dim NEW_POINT As New System.Drawing.Point(x, y)
    If TextBox1.Location.Equals(NEW_POINT) Then
