Mostly Bollogs, I'm afraid

But occasionally, a glimmer of truth.
If you find one, please let me know.

I can't see anything wrong here. I am loading it into VS so I can try to debug it. It might take a while. How much of a hurry are you in?

The only comments I have off hand are:

*I don't think you need to add the events again. they are there by default.

*The cast to a label looks odd I would use (label)sender. etc Can't see why your way doesn't work though.

I put the events there so they'd fail and I'd see they were being fired.

What are you trying to achieve? The moving of labels? You need to handle the MouseMove event of the label if that's the case.
