Child GUI stick to Parent when dragging window?

Recommended Posts


Hi guys,

I'm working in a simple GUI, here's my situation.

I have a GUI that uses popup, layered and topmost.

Im creating IE object to pull in a webpage, which worked perfectly until I wanted the GUI to have a transparent background with no toolbars and transparent PNG as the window.

So now, my object (GuiCtrlCreateObject) doesn't show on the window at all, the only

successful way I've got the object to show is by creating a child GUI - this is where my next problem

comes in, when idrag the PARENT window the child doesn't move with it, I need it to stick and stay in position with the parent GUI.

I would bebgreatful if anybody knew a solution

to this, or a solution to getting an object to show with the transparent window GUI without using a child GUI!

I can't post source code at the moment as I'm not at the pc so it's not available.

Thanks again.

$WS_EX_MDICHILD as exStyle to your GUICreate function [if you must use multiple Extended Styles: BitOR($WS_EX_MDICHILD, ???, ???, ...)]

I don't know if that's what you were askig about but this may be easier than searching in sources when you're not too familiar with this ;)
