This is way too off-topic. What have you tried until now?

Why? And how moving can be a problem?

I dont understand, can you make it clear ?

You did not even specify what do you mean by "TextBox". How about its full type name?

From what I can ascertain, you are looking for a run time equivalent functionality to be able to dynamically move objects on your UI around with the included "guidelines" you get when in Design mode? This is not something that's easily just done, you will need to introduce some UI monitoring.

when you move a control in your C# design UI, you can set it position with other controls i want to know how to do it in my program

One way I thought would be to keep a list of other controls/textboxes and each time you drag the other TextBox keep track of there X and Y coordinates. Have a panel or other custom control on layer below where the form is being designed. Each time re-draw the 'guide' lines on the panel if the X Y coordinates line up.
