PictureBox Class, BorderStyle, Mouse Events

I am migrating a VB 6 PictureBox control to VB.NET. In VB
6, this control modified its border style during the mouse
down and up events to provide user feedback that it was
selected. Once selected its position was adjusted in
accordance with the mouse move events.

After migrating it to VB.NET I tried setting the
PictureBox class's BorderStyle to Fixed3D or FixedSingle
during the Mouse Down event. However, doing so seems to
prevent the control from receiving mouse move events once
the mouse moves off the PictureBox control. NOT setting
this property allows the control to track the mouse's
position even if the mouse is over some other app's window.

Can I not use this border style property to provide
feedback to the user or do I need to use some other method
if I want to track mouse movements?

Does Microsoft have a comment the possible bug on the PictureBox Class. Here is the exchange I had on the Experts-Exchange regarding this issue: From Z_Beeblebrox: Hi, I believe it is standard windows behavious to continue to send mouse events to the window in which the mouse was depressed until the mouse is released. A quick test in VB6 confirms this, but I don't have .Net here to test that,

IS there a way to access a keydown event from the .net picturebox control. I need to display a picture and have the user press the page up/down key to go to the previous/next pic. I see mouse events but not keypress. If the PB does not have this, then is there a way to intercept a kepress from any control on the form? Thanks

Hi all, I've got a UserControl that contains a few PictureBox objects. If I click on outside of the Picture in the UserControl, the scrolling with the mouse button works - however, no amount of clicking on the PictureBox objects will get that scrolling working. However, after I click on outside of the PictureBox object, then click as many times as I like on the PictureBox the scrolling with the mouse wheel continues to work. I found...

I am working on a program that has multiple picturebox controls that a user is allowed to move around which are contained within a panel control for visual placement. In my mousedown event, I set the picturebox control's borderstyle to Fixed3D, but upon doing so, I am not able to track the picturebox control through mousemove events (if you move the mouse off of the control too quickly, the control no longer receives mouse events). If I...

I have a picturebox on my VB.NET form. The picturebox size mode is set to stretched. I then load an image into that form and display it. As the user moves the mouse over the form, I want to get and display (in the status bar) the image coordinates of the mouse location. However, if I use the picturebox's MouseMove event, I am getting the coordinates of the mouse over the PICTUREBOX, not the actual image underneath that (which is stretched)....

I am making an application that streams video from a web camera onto the client area of a PictureBox on a Windows CLR Form in MS Visual Studio 2005 (using C++). The streaming video works fine, and now I am trying to create an image overlay. I am assuming that the best way for me to do this is to create a second PictureBox that lays over the streaming video. I would then need to draw directly into the bitmap shown in the overlaying...

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
