i need to get x,y of label in access form when moving on label at the the top corner of it in access form it gives us 96,76 (mousemove event and using GetCursorPos pt : text2=pt.x & "..." & pt.y

but when use (me.label1.left-me.windowleft)/15 it gives us 76.8

how kind of Api function we have to use to get x=95 like getcursorpos

What I have tried:

(me.label1.left-me.windowleft)/15 different from pt.x
also tried :
ClientToScreen Me.hwnd,pt
text2=pt.x/15 ... give me 91.8 so far from 96

me.windowleft(Access document)

Returns an Integer indicating the screen position in twips of the left edge of a form relative to the left edge of the Microsoft Access window. Read-only.

I won't because I don't work with Access at all.

Most people here don't/won't work with Access.

Finally They Can offer some way one by one and guide me, which Api Function to be used in turn

1 solution

GetCursorPos returns the position of the cursor relative to the screen and gives values in Pixels

Me.label1.Left returns the position of the label relative to the form and gives values in twips

To complicate matters even further Window.Left is going to be relative to the Access Application itself. You will need to get a handle to the application window then use something like GetWindowRect to find it's position. There is an archived example of similar here - Q242308: HOWTO: Find a Window Handle from an Instance Handle | KnowledgeBase Archive[^]

Get the pixel positions of everything and you can then calculate the position of the label relative to the form relative to the application then relative to the screen. Edit - you may need to take into account label/form margins and padding

It might be simpler than that - perhaps you just want to convert Twips to Pixels? In which case see Convert Twip to Pixel (X)[^]

Label1.Left = 0.8"
The Left in screen is 96 Not 76.8
How can get the 96 ( Correct Point )
you mean get the handle of MDICHILDREN First And Change to point the use (mHandle.Left-me.label1.left)?

Why ask , because i want to create Static On The Label Coordinate
