    Resize controls and Gripper handles

    I need to provide a control resize functionality for my users to move and
    resize certian controls on a form. It should work exactly the same way VB's
    IDE works when a control on a form in design mode is clicked, moved,
    resized, etc. Also, I need to do the "lasso" functionality to select several
    items at once and work with them as a group. I've tried a couple of times to
    do this in vb but the result has been operational but very flaky. Has anyone
    done this who could offer some guidance. I'm wondering if an API based
    approach is needed or available since I'm beginning to think VB doesn't keep
    up with the mouse quickly enough sometimes.
    Thanks
    JE

    Hi JE,

    We have an app that is providing such functionality, dev team told me they
    are using a tool called tracker from www.kazagur.com
