i have been using the microsoft visual basic 2005 express edition beta which is my first attempt at doing anything with visual basic so it has been taking me a long time to learn myself how to do things - mainly by using google and also reading through all the posts on forums such as this one.
the thing i am completely stuck on though is that i would like to use a borderless form for the sake of being able to completely control the appearance of my program on the screen but realise that people would want to be able to move it about in the same way that msn messenger can be dragged around the screen using the mouse when the windowframe is hidden.
i have kept copying in different pieces of code from all sorts of websites below are just 2 examples but nothing i have tried works in the current program.
does anyone know the solution to this? i will carry on trawling for answers but if someone knows a working set of bits of code i will be very grateful if they could tell me.
