Create a GUI with the $WS_POPUP style, then create a label or pic control with the $GUI_WS_EX_PARENTDRAG Extra Style to be what you click and drag to move the GUI.

I'm not sure if this is what you want, but I suppose you mean you want the GUI to folow the mouse?

supposed the name of your GUI is mygui

$pos=MouseGetPos()

WinMove("mygui","",$pos[0],$pos[1])

(put that in your While loop)

What did you expect would happen, what actually happened and what should happen (in your eyes) ?

Click and drag the label and the GUI will be moved :

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

GUICreate("", 200, 60, -1, -1, $WS_POPUP)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 0, 0, 200, 20, -1, $GUI_WS_EX_PARENTDRAG)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFF0000)
GUISetState()

Do
Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

EDIT : Clarity

Then you're opening the wrong helpfile (should be AutoIt.chm).

Another way to do it:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Const $HTCAPTION = 2
Const $WM_NCLBUTTONDOWN = 0xA1

$gui = GuiCreate("Test",200,60,-1,-1,BitOR($WS_POPUP,$WS_BORDER)) 
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    Switch GuiGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $GUI_EVENT_PRIMARYDOWN
            Drag()
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func Drag()
    dllcall("user32.dll","int","ReleaseCapture")
    dllcall("user32.dll","int","SendMessage","hWnd", $gui,"int",$WM_NCLBUTTONDOWN,"int", $HTCAPTION,"int", 0)
EndFunc
