Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

[SettingsBindableAttribute(true)]
public Point Location { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Point
The Point that represents the upper-left corner of the Form in screen coordinates.

Point is a structure, which means that it is a value type. If you access a property in Point, a copy of the property is returned. Therefore, changing the X or Y properties of the Point returned from the Location property will not affect the Left, Right, Top, or Bottom property values of the Form. To adjust these properties, set each property value individually, or set the Location property with a new Point.

The Location property gets or sets the Location property of the Control base class, and sets the Bindable property to true.
