    Re: Form Move

    Sounds completely goofy. But if you want that why not look into WM_MOVE and WM_MOVING. Both are described in the documentation that came with VB6.

    Are you familiar with "The Postman" (1997) with Kevin Costner? It gets a lot of hate. I liked the book well before the movie got made.

    It just isn't that simple. Correcting for inflation when you plot the increasing role of money you get an exponential curve even on a log scale. It has truly gotten that bad.
