Is there a way to move a GUI you created without using WinMove? It seems to me that WinMove is a bit sloppy (could register something else or glitch if you have two instances open?).

I can find numerous ways to move controls around in a GUI, but I can't figure out any way to move the GUI itself!

When you have a handle to your GUI I doubt it will "glitch" as windows cannot share the same handle.

What's sloppy about it? It is very precise. You can use WinGetPos to find it's current position and move it to a precise number of pixels in x and y coordinates. Example:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("My Window", 280, 180, -1, -1)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Move", 88, 64, 75, 25)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Button1
            $currentPosition = WinGetPos("My Window")
            WinMove("My Window", "", $currentPosition[0] + 50, $currentPosition[1] - 50)
    EndSwitch
WEnd

#include <ByteMe.au3>

benzrf,

You can always use the handle in place of "title" in any native AutoIt function - but do not forget to set the "text" parameter to "" if you do. :)
