Class: CaptionlessWindowMover in Category Microsoft Visual Basic 6 : Forms from Total Visual SourceBook

Class that allows the user to move a form with the mouse, even if it doesn't have a caption in VB6.

If you create a form without a caption bar, there is normally no way for the user to move it with a mouse. If you wish to allow the user to move the form with a mouse by dragging on any part of the form, not just the caption, you can use this class to handle the mouse-related events required to make this happen.
