Using Label Control as Splitter

Here's a demo for using a Label control as a splitter between two controls, as well as sample code for employing the splitter in an Explorer-like application:
Option Explicit

Private mbResizing As Boolean
	'flag to indicate whether mouse left
	'button is pressed down

Private Sub Form_Load()
	TreeView1.Move 0, 0, Me.ScaleWidth / 3, _
	ListView1.Move (Me.ScaleWidth / 3) + 50, 0, _
		(Me.ScaleWidth * 2 / 3) - 50, _
	Label1.Move Me.ScaleWidth / 3, 0, 100, _
	Label1.MousePointer = vbSizeWE
End Sub

Private Sub Label1_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As _
	Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
	If Button = vbLeftButton Then mbResizing = _
End Sub

Private Sub Label1_MouseMove(Button As _
	Integer, Shift As Integer, X As _
	Single, Y As Single)
	'resizing controls while the left mousebutton is 
	'pressed down
	If mbResizing Then
		Dim nX As Single
		nX = Label1.Left + X
		If nX < 500 Then Exit Sub
		If nX > Me.ScaleWidth - 500 Then Exit Sub
		TreeView1.Width = nX
		ListView1.Left = nX + 50
		ListView1.Width = Me.ScaleWidth - nX - _
		Label1.Left = nX
	End If
End Sub

Private Sub Label1_MouseUp(Button As Integer, _
	Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
	mbResizing = False
End Sub
