VB code translated to C#.

Posted on 2011-09-20

I have found code to resize a borderless form.
But the code is in VB! So I use this site:
to convert the code to C#.

After testing it there is one little problem ( i hope i explain this right):

After I have resized the form and let go of the mouse-button
the edge of the form is still attached to the mouse-cursor. So
even do I let go of the mouse-button I still can resize the form.
I have to click it twice before it actually let go.

I have tested the VB-version and that works great.

Does someone knows the anser and is willing to help me?

Vb uses WithEvent Clause when Declare Buttons and Panel.
This Generates some internal properties to set EventHandlers.

You need add Handlers to Buttons and Panel as converter do´nt make it.

You omit also methods from buttons
public StickyNotes()
            MouseMove += StickyNotes_MouseMove;
            MouseDown += StickyNotes_MouseDown;

            this.btnClose.Click += btnClose_Click;
            this.btnMaximize.Click += btnMaximize_Click;
            this.btnMinimize.Click += this.btnMinimize_Click;
            this.pnlCaption.MouseMove += pnlCaption_MouseMove;
            this.pnlCaption.MouseDown += pnlCaption_MouseDown;
        private void pnlCaption_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
            if ((e.Button == MouseButtons.Left) & (this.WindowState != FormWindowState.Maximized))
        private void pnlCaption_MouseMove(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
            this.resizeDir = ResizeDirection.None;
        private void btnClose_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        private void btnMinimize_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            this.WindowState = FormWindowState.Minimized;
        private void btnMaximize_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (this.WindowState == FormWindowState.Maximized)
                this.WindowState = FormWindowState.Normal;
                this.btnMaximize.Text = "Maximize";
                this.WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized;
                this.btnMaximize.Text = "Restore";
