I am making a Winforms C# application in Visual C# 2010 Express. I want to place lots of picture boxes, all touching eachother, in a grid shape. However, Visual Studio has a snap-to-nearby-controls feature, and this snaps the controls to about 10px apart. I was wondering if I could change the distance that it snaps to, so I could have the picture boxes snap to a touching state?

Hope that explanation wasn't too complicated!

I don't know, but I'm sure that using any snap is a bad way of programming, because it means absolute positioning. Right style is when everything is docked to everything, with padding, so layout flows automatically. Your question is -- just not interesting to address, because there is no a good use of snapping.

If you go to Tools->Options->WindowsFormDesigner you should find the ShowGrid and SnapToGrid and GridSize values that you can change. The control to control snapping I'm not too sure about.
