Hi, Can any body tell me why am I getting a mouse move event with every mouse click event. I am having a simple form without any control on it. I have two handlers one for mouse move and one for mouse click. I am printing a Console.Writeline("Mouse Clicked") in mouse click handler and Console.Writeline("Mouse Moved") in mouse move handler. But whenever I click on the form follwoing lines are printed Mouse Clicked Mouse Moved Why is that? Please help me.

I don't know why Microsoft is firing a MouseMove after a click, whether its is by design or just a bug. But you can ignore it in your code by setting a flag in the click handler and testing it in the mousemove handler.
Private Sub Form1_MouseMove(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles MyBase.MouseMove
	If bIgnoreMouseMove Then
		bIgnoreMouseMove = False
	End If
End Sub

Private Sub Form1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Click

	bIgnoreMouseMove = True
End Sub
