I am using a MetroForm with one caption Image and one caption label (look fine ;-)) ).
While testing, I realized, that the form is not moving on mouse press within the image or the Label; outside it works fine.
What do I have to do, to activate this Feature?

Thank you in advance,

Hi Wolfgang, 
Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support. 
In MetroForm CaptionImage and CaptionLabel are like Button control placed in Panel Container control and this implementation helps user to place required Image / Text in Caption Bar and to perform required action when user clicks on it.  
Reference Image 
It can be achieved by using its Mouse events. Kindly refer the below UG documentation link. 
So when clicking on this CaptionImage and CaptionLabel, it will not be accounted as selection on MetroForm Caption Bar and Form will not be moved as it is the standardized behavior.
