Sorry, I don't think you are ready to do UI just yet. I answered and would be very glad if my answer helps you, but it would be much more useful if you stop doing UI and graphic and go to simple console applications and learn the real basics, until you feel at least minimal confidence. Otherwise, you will waste too much time and only get frustrated.

1 solution

1) You are trying to assign, but you want a Boolean expression. Use '==', not '='; 2) C# is a case-sensitive language; there is no "location", there is "Location"; 3) Xcoord is not declared, or you simply don't show it; 5) Xcoord assume X coordinate of some numeric type, but Location is the structure with X and Y, so compare X and Y separately; 6) comparing location does not really make sense; why? you position the control, why checking it? it if is positioned with a mouse, you never do it accurately, so you really need do the hit test for some region, not one point; 7) brackets in this "code" are not balanced.

There is no situation when what you have written can be useful. You need to start over.
