Hi All,

I create a form and I want to drag a control that space between control could be moved smoothly and as close as possible between controls.

How could I do it ?

Thank you.

Are you saying you would like to turn off the "snap-to" functionality--at least briefly?

Hi kaufmed,

I want to do it at design time :

ControlA

ControlB

I want it to be :
ControlA
ControlB

It is hard to use drag controlB to close to controlA at design time. I have to use location property to set it.

Is there any other to set it ?

Thank you.

With the control selected, simply use the arrow keys to move it around.

You can hold down the "Alt" key while dragging and it should negate the snap-to functionality until you release the key.

Select both controls.

In the toolbar, you have a series of buttons that help you to work with controls placement. If it does not show, activate View...Toolbars...Layout.

There is a button toward the middle to Remove Horizontal Spacing, and another one, a little more to the right to Remove Vertical Spacing.
