Gets or sets the location of the form on the Windows desktop.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
Desktop coordinates are based on the working area of the screen, which excludes the taskbar. The coordinate system of the desktop is pixel based. If your application is running on a multimonitor system, the coordinates of the form are the coordinates for the combined desktop.
You can use this property to position your form relative to other forms and applications on the Windows desktop.
If you call the SetDesktopLocation method before calling the Show method, your form will be positioned at its default location, which is determined by the operating system. For more information about window positioning, see the "Window Size and Position" section of the "Window Features" document in the MSDN library at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library.
The following code example sets the position of a form so that the form is positioned 100 pixels from the left border of the desktop and 100 pixels from the top of the desktop. This example requires that method has been defined within a form class.
