Hello all, I'm new here, I purchaced the DarkGDK.Net and I managed to build a form that opens up the DarkGDK in a boarderless window, from a button on the form. What I want to do is attache the DarkGDK window to the form so that if the form moves the DarkGDK window moves with it on the screen. Now if you look at the code you will see is that I can bring the DarkGDK to the front if I click on the form itself with just a button, but I don't want to have to do this, it should be done automatically so that needs to be corrected as well. I was also playing around with it and I also managed to get the DarkGDK window to display in a Picturebox but for some reason the object did not show up. Also you;ll see that I was playin around with the graphics and stuff so just ignore that part of the code. So can someone help me out that would be great and Thank you in advance.[Imports DarkGDK

Never mind, I figured it out, didn't see the "The Game Creators" folder before which had all the documentation, cause I was gonna complain about that too, but I guess I'll just shut up. Problem fixed.

Also, theres a nice little "code" button you can press to make the code you post easier to read
