Move buttons by user ?

P: n/a
Hello,

is it possible to let the user move buttons on a screen ?
I have multiple buttons on a screen and the user can decide where to put
the buttons.
I know i can write the left and top position to a table and read them
when opening the same screen.

Thanks in advance

One simple option is to give users access to your form's design so
they may rearrange elements to their liking. Not for the faint of
heart. Perhaps better to just find a design that works for everyone.

Programmatically this is difficult to do. Access is not good at drag
and drop, so I foresee more Windows API calls than most developers
would want to bother with.

i've got it to work , real visible drag and drop is not posible but
repositioning the button is possble.
Then i write the top and left value to a table.
