I'm trying to put my own button on the toolbar.

I put three pictureboxes on top of each other

(no border, raised, pressed) to simulate the

behavior of a "real" tool button. The problem

I have is with detecting whether the mouse is

off the button. Normally, neither Form_MouseMove

nor chrtFX_MouseMoving are called.

If I set:

chrtFX.MouseCapture = True

then ALL mouseevents are captured. I can no

longer move the window, minimize it, or click

on other windows.

If I set:


then mysteriously the entire toolbar disappears.

(except for my "fake" button)

Any suggestions?
