moveable window with no title bar

4 posts in this topic

ok so i have this code in my script

$hSplash = GUICreate("GateRun", 205, 50, 0, 5, $WS_POPUP, BitOR($WS_EX_TOPMOST, $WS_EX_WINDOWEDGE, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW))
$hsplashtext=GUICtrlCreateLabel("",0,0,200,40)
    GUICtrlSetFont($hsplashtext, 8, 500, 0,"Arial",2)
$htimers=GUICtrlCreateLabel("",0,39,205,10)
GUICtrlSetFont($htimers, 6, 200, 0,"Arial",2)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

i know i have the menu/title bar gone. what i'm trying to figure out is how to make it if u click on the window and drag, it will move the entire window just as if u were click and dragin on the title bar. esenctally i'm trying to have a non active window, small as can be on top to keep me updated of what my code is doing. any one pointing me in the right direction will get a hug!

If you use $GUI_WS_EX_PARENTDRAG as the extended style setting of the label, it lets you drag the window around with the label you created.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
