i have simple form without border and without title bar. There is only single label on it showing stopwatch. I need form to be movable by clicking mouse anywhere on form and then drag.
I solved that, but the problem is when i click on form on spot occupied by label, form will not move. In another words, i need Label only to be seen, not having any other function. How do i make label click through?
There is already an answer for this in this site, but that was in C#, so I repeat that answer here but translated in VB.NET. If you think that this is useful don't esitate the upvote that answer also....
The important thing to note here is the handling of the mousedown also for the Label1 and not only for the form
Public Class Form1 <DllImportAttribute("user32.dll")> _ Public Shared Function SendMessage(hWnd As IntPtr, Msg As Integer, wParam As Integer, lParam As Integer) As Integer End Function <DllImportAttribute("user32.dll")> Public Shared Function ReleaseCapture() As Boolean End Function Private Sub Form1_MouseDown(sender As Object, e As MouseEventArgs) Handles MyBase.MouseDown, Label1.MouseDown Const WM_NCLBUTTONDOWN As Integer = &HA1 Const HT_CAPTION As Integer = &H2 If e.Button = MouseButtons.Left Then ReleaseCapture() SendMessage(Handle, WM_NCLBUTTONDOWN, HT_CAPTION, 0) End If End Sub End Class
