Ok I have set a command button to drag(automatic)
so i click on the button and i get an outline of the button
which means i am dragging it.
My problem is when i drop it, it disapears. I want to make it so i can drag my command button and then drop it on the form.
Can you give me a very straight forward example? thanx
in the forms drag drop event you need to put <pre>source.move x,y</pre>

<pre>Private Sub Form_DragDrop(Source As Control, X As Single, Y As Single)

i didnt realise it was that simple!
no problem, to get a better effect on your drag try this
<pre>Dim sngInnerX As Single
Dim sngInnerY As Single
Private Sub Command1_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
sngInnerX = X
sngInnerY = Y
Private Sub Form_DragDrop(Source As Control, X As Single, Y As Single)
Source.Move X - sngInnerX, Y - sngInnerY
That's pretty cool. I never used Drag & Drop because I didn't see much need for it in my applications, but if I had realized how easy it is, I may have let the user move a few buttons around and save the settings to the registry. Hmmmm....

It works great thanx. but there was one little problem that i had to remove to make it work. its was the
that wasnt important was it?
no that should have been"["/pre"]" its just a tag to make the text look like code in the post
You could edit your post to show him what you mean.
