[POST MOVED TO THE POWERSHELL GUI FORUM BY MODERATOR]

The Form movement is handled by the Window's frame, there for if you want to move the form you will have to implement the code using the MouseMove event or create some C# code to interface with the Windows API.

Please refer to the following link:

Thank you. My good friend, Gandalf,taught me well.

On the serious side ... a good book on the Windows Forms will do wonders:

Well, I was not disappointed with the last bit of reading advice you gave me. I will check these suggestions out as well.
