child GUI boundries inside parent?

Recommended Posts


my problem/question is, can i have a child GUI that cannot be dragged out of its parent? or is there a setting for this?

so far i have this code (images attached if you'd like:

$MAINGUI = GUICreate("Coins", 600, 400)
$FILEMENU = GUICtrlCreateMenu("File")
$FILEMENUSECT1 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Open player...", $FILEMENU)
$FILEMENUSECT2 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Save player...", $FILEMENU)
$FILEMENUSECT3 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Save", $FILEMENU)
GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("", $FILEMENU)
$FILEMENUSECT4 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Exit", $FILEMENU)
GUICtrlCreatePic("backround.jpg", 0, 0, 600, 380) 
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)

$DIMEWIN = GUICreate("", 40, 40, 20, 20, $WS_POPUP, BitOr($WS_EX_LAYERED, $WS_EX_MDICHILD), $MAINGUI)
$DIME = GUICtrlCreatePic("dime.gif", 0, 0, 40, 40)
While 1
    $GET = GUIGetMsg()
    If $GET = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then Exit
    If $GET = $FILEMENUSECT4 Then Exit
    If $GET = $DIME Then Drag($DIMEWIN)
Func Drag($WIN)
        $MOUSEPOS = MouseGetPos()
        WinMove($WIN, "", $MOUSEPOS[0], $MOUSEPOS[1])
    Until _IsPressed(01) = 0

and when you Drag the dime, the child window can be dragged anywhere evn outside of the parent, i don't want this, i need a way to only allow it to be dragged inside the parent GUI

any ideas ?

edit i dont really have time to look in depth at the code now but it doesnt seem that you can use this script for two GUI's running in one script, does anyone know ? again i'll look more at it when i get back
