I'm attempting to set the Left and Top positions for images that will be displayed on a screen using code like this in the Form_Load() event:

Me.oleLegal.Visible = True
Me.lblLegal.Visible = True
Me.oleLegal.Left = 2.2188
Me.oleLegal.Top = 0.4271
Me.lblLegal.Left = 2.2188
Me.lblLegal.Top = 1.4271

Presently the images are displaying at the top left of the screen.  I would arrange the images "by hand" on the form, but users have different security levels, and I want the display to look uniform.  Thanks in advance for your help, and let me know if I need to clarify anything.

From Help - Top (et al) Property:

" .... In Visual Basic, use a numeric expression to set the value of this property. Values are expressed in twips (twip: Unit of measurement that is equal to 1/20 of a point, or 1/1,440 of an inch. There are 567 twips in a centimeter.)."

IE   1440 twips per inch
