MouseClick fires after MouseDown and MouseUp, as long as the cursor has not moved too much in between.

Note that it is possible to receive a MouseUp and a MouseDown but now MouseClick. If the user press down on the button over a control but releases it over another one, the first will receive only a MouseDown, the second will receive only a MouseUp, but none will receive a MouseClick.

This is why MouseClick is the best one to use in most cases. It makes sure that the user really intended to click on the button and was not simply cancelling an error.

These are some events you can fire with a mouse in .net

MouseDown: This event happens when the mouse pointer is over the form/control and is pressed
MouseEnter: This event happens when the mouse pointer enters the form/control
MouseUp: This event happens when the mouse pointer is over the form/control and the mouse button is released
MouseLeave: This event happens when the mouse pointer leaves the form/control
MouseMove: This event happens when the mouse pointer is moved over the form/control
MouseWheel: This event happens when the mouse wheel moves while the form/control has focus
MouseHover: This event happens when the mouse pointer hovers over the form/control

If you check this site you will see an example that illustrates how to handle mouse events -

For your last question, "what happens when you press the button and release after moving the mouse?" In principle you have activated: 1. the MouseDown. 2. MouseMove and 3. The mouse up.

Hope this helps you to understand what goes on?

Strange.

The question was about MouseClick and the answer that was selected for a solution did not even mention MouseClick.

Might be my reading glasses.

@JamesBurger: I suppose it's your reading glasses, as there are 2 main questions.
1. when does the click event trigger
2.  what happens when you press the button and release after moving the mouse?

This answered both questions:

MouseClick fires after MouseDown and MouseUp, as long as the cursor has not moved too much in between.

Note that it is possible to receive a MouseUp and a MouseDown but now MouseClick. If the user press down on the button over a control but releases it over another one, the first will receive only a MouseDown, the second will receive only a MouseUp, but none will receive a MouseClick.

This is why MouseClick is the best one to use in most cases. It makes sure that the user really intended to click on the button and was not simply cancelling an error.
