    Changing mouse position programmatically

    Hello everyone. I would like your assistance in learning how to do the following two things in .net:

    1. How do I alter the mouse position programmatically?

    2. How do I send an event (ie. mouse click event) to a specific control?

    Thanks a bunch,

    Tony

    To set the cursor position, assign the desired point (in screen coordinates) to the Cursor.Position property.

    Cursor.Position = New Point(300, 50)

    To fire a control event, just call it. For example, if you have a button click event for Button1 defined as:
    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As _
    System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
    MessageBox.Show("This is Button1's click event.")
    End Sub

    You can fire the click event from code like this:
    Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As _
    System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
    Button1_Click(Me, Nothing)
    ' or Button1_Click(Nothing, Nothing) or any other valid values for the parameters
    End Sub
