Hi

I am trying to open a windows form at a point over a TreeView
How do I do this?
I tried using the following line to load my form at the point where my mouse is but that didn't work
 Form1.Location = Me.PointToClient(System.Windows.Forms.Cursor.Position)
Form1.show

    Private Sub TreeView1_MouseUp(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles TreeView1.MouseUp
        Dim f As New Form2
        f.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.Manual
        f.Location = f.PointToScreen(New Point(Me.Location.X + e.X, Me.Location.Y + e.Y))
        f.Show()

    End Sub

Open in new window


You have to be sure to set FormStartPosition to Manual. You'll also probably want to declare the second form variable at the module level, but this should do it.
