    Hi,
     Let me know how to move a single control at run time.

    Suppose at the run time, on the form I have one Text box control and I want to change the position of the Text box at run time only. i.e. by using mouse I'll drag the Text box and drop it on the form where I want.(but at run time).

    plz give me some idea or sample of code.

    Thanx

    Hi Sandhya,

    This code is working for me, try and let me know
    put a text box with name as textBox1 and proceed.

    bool Dragging;
            int mousex;
            int mousey;

            private void textBox1_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
            {
                if (e.Button == MouseButtons.Left)
                {
                    Dragging = true;
                    mousex = -e.X;
                    mousey = -e.Y;
                    int clipleft = this.PointToClient(MousePosition).X - textBox1.Location.X;
                    int cliptop = this.PointToClient(MousePosition).Y - textBox1.Location.Y;
                    int clipwidth = this.ClientSize.Width - (textBox1.Width - clipleft);
                    int clipheight = this.ClientSize.Height - (textBox1.Height - cliptop);
                    Cursor.Clip = this.RectangleToScreen(new Rectangle(clipleft, cliptop, clipwidth, clipheight));
                    textBox1.Invalidate();
                }
            }

            private void textBox1_MouseMove(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
            {
                if (Dragging)
                {
                    Point MPosition = new Point();
                    MPosition = this.PointToClient(MousePosition);
                    MPosition.Offset(mousex, mousey);
                    textBox1.Location = MPosition;
                }
            }

            private void textBox1_MouseUp(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
            {
                if (Dragging)
                {
                    Dragging = false;
                    Cursor.Clip = System.Drawing.Rectangle.Empty;
                    textBox1.Invalidate();
                }
            }      

    Thanks and Regards

    Can you put all the controls you want to move into a container, such as a group box and move that?

    Hi Dear, The code which you have given is working fine for single textbox. What about multiple textbox with different ID?

    Here is my code

    public bool Dragging;

    int mousex;

    int mousey;public Form2()

    {

    InitializeComponent();

    foreach (Control ctl in this.Controls)

    {

    if (ctl.GetType() == typeof(Button))

    {

     

    Button btn = (Button)ctl;

     

    btn.MouseDown +=
    new MouseEventHandler(buttonN_MouseDown);

    btn.MouseMove += new MouseEventHandler(buttonN_MouseMove);

    btn.MouseUp += new MouseEventHandler(buttonN_MouseUp);

    }

    }

    }

    private void buttonN_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)

    {

    Button btn = (Button)sender;if (e.Button == MouseButtons.Left)

    {

    Dragging =
    true;

    mousex = -e.X;

    mousey = -e.Y;

    int clipleft = this.PointToClient(MousePosition).X - btn.Location.X;

    int cliptop = this.PointToClient(MousePosition).Y - btn.Location.Y;

    int clipwidth = this.ClientSize.Width - (btn.Width - clipleft);

    int clipheight = this.ClientSize.Height - (btn.Height - cliptop);

    Cursor.Clip = this.RectangleToScreen(new Rectangle(clipleft, cliptop, clipwidth, clipheight));

    //Cursor.Clip = this.RectangleToScreen(new Rectangle(52, 254, clipwidth, clipheight));

    btn.Invalidate();

    }

    }

    private void buttonN_MouseMove(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)

    {

    Button btn = (Button)sender;if (Dragging)

    {

    Point MPosition = new Point();

    MPosition = this.PointToClient(MousePosition);

    MPosition.Offset(mousex, mousey);

    foreach (Control ctl in this.Controls)

    {

    if (ctl.GetType() == typeof(Button))

    {

    btn.Location = MPosition;

    }

    }

    }

    }

    private void buttonN_MouseUp(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)

    {

    Button btn = (Button)sender;if (Dragging)

    {

    Dragging = false;

    Cursor.Clip = System.Drawing.Rectangle.Empty;

    btn.Invalidate();

    }

    }
