I've seen some widgets in this forum but I wanted something simple (e.g. for RSS) and, while playing with the help file, I came up with this:

#NoTrayIcon

It works well, but I was wondering how can configuration window be docked with the main widget window when I move it? (Something like winamp playlist)

Maybe the answer is simple, but I can't figure it out   :blink:

Thanks in advance!

taietel,

Check this forum link and do a forum search on some keywords like dockable windows, dock gui and others to find more examples to help you figure out a solution.

jfcby, thanks for the link!

Gary's function for docking isn't quite of what I want (in that function, the windows docking is delayed), BUT it's a great start. I'm already working on it and I'll get back.

Regards,

M.Iancu

[EDIT] Fixed some bugs, but not the docking

Any idea on how to move together those two GUIs, when one is dragged? Thanks in advance!

In AMT I use these functions to attach the child GUIs.

Func On_WM_MOVING($hWnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam)
    If $hWnd = $gui_main Then
        _Move_attached_GUIs()
    EndIf
    Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG
EndFunc   ;==>On_WM_MOVING

Func On_WM_EXITSIZEMOVE($hWnd, $Msg, $wParam, $lParam)
    If $hWnd <> $gui_main Then
        _Move_attached_GUIs()
    EndIf
    Return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG
EndFunc   ;==>On_WM_EXITSIZEMOVE

where the _Move_attached_GUIs() function contains the movement instructions relative to the main GUI.

Thanks KaFu, but I didn't found the AMT. The page was suspended...

I guess I will just live it like this (it doesn't hurts!  :blink: ):
