Moving GUI without Title Bar

Recommended Posts

TheCrimsonCrusader

Greetings. Is there a way to make the GUI below movable when clicking and dragging on it? I know I can remove the WS_Popup style where there will be a title bar with no controls and I can move it that way from the title bar area, but I would prefer to not have the title bar if at all possible. Thanks in advance!

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

GUICreate("TestGUI", 481, 476, -1, -1,BitOR($WS_DLGFRAME,$WS_POPUP,$WS_EX_TOPMOST), 0)

GUISetState()

While 1
Sleep(1000)
WEnd

TheCrimsonCrusader,

The Moving and Resizing PopUp GUIs tutorial in the Wiki will explain several ways to do this. :)

I was so mad that I couldn't figure this out, thank you! This worked like a charm. For me, I had to add this at the end of my GUI Region for it to work. In case someone else has that issue.
