how to place a Wind Form in a certain location on another Winform

I want to display the actual winform position on the screen. The current code is the following:

Dim dlgAskInput as New dlgAskInput
'This is where I save the location on the screen
dlgAskInput.Location=New Point (_partfile.showsumamryInputLabelTop, _partfileShowSummaryInputLabelLeft)
dlgAskInput.showDialog(me)

Open in new window


The problem is that it is never applying the Location=New Point (_partfile.showsumamryInputLabelTop, _partfileShowSummaryInputLabelLeft) to the dlgAskInpout form location.

Thanks in advance,

Set the start position to manual before the show Dialog call.
dlgAskInput.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.Manual;

Open in new window

Kyle I figured it out thank you for your suggestions above.

You need to call your suggested "FormStartPosition.Manual" first before  you define the new location.
