    I am trying to set the location of a shaped form to be relative to a specific control on the calling form, however when i change the location before the "ShowDialog()"  it doesn't actually move the form. 

    regardless of the cords that i put in, the shaped form opens in the same spot.

    Hi Phillip Foster,

    In order to achieve the desired behavior, you should set the StartPosition property to Manual:
    ShapedForm f = new ShapedForm();
    f.Location = new Point(500, 500);
    f.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.Manual;

    I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact us.

    Best wishes,
