no, that's only Perform Drag/drop. But I wanna know: If you drag and drop in a GUI, where does the drag start (x,y) and where does it end? (x,y)

You want to CAUSE a drag-n-drop, or MONITOR one?

If you want to do it from the script, look at MouseClickDrag() in the help file.

If you want to monitor the user doing it, I think you want _IsPressed() to monitor the button down and button up, getting the mouse coordinates with MouseGetPos() at each end. This would raise the question of how to tell the difference between a click-n-drag and just a click... I don't know.

He wants to monitor one, so he can find out where the GUI is placed so it can be added to the users script created in his program.

In that case, this will assume that holding down left click more than 500msec is a "click-n-drag", and will ToolTip the X/Y coordinates at each end:

#include <misc.au3>

While 1
    If _IsPressed("01") Then
        $MousePos = MouseGetPos()
        $Timer = TimerInit()
        Do
            If Not _IsPressed("01") Then ExitLoop
        Until TimerDiff($Timer) > 500
        If _IsPressed("01") Then
            ToolTip("Left click held down at:" & @LF & _
                    "X = " & $MousePos[0] & "   Y = " & $MousePos[1])
            Do
                Sleep(5)
            Until Not _IsPressed("01")
            $MousePos = MouseGetPos()
            ToolTip("Left click released at:" & @LF & _
                    "X = " & $MousePos[0] & "   Y = " & $MousePos[1] & @LF & _
                    "In " & Round(TimerDiff($Timer) / 1000, 3) & " seconds.")
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    EndIf
WEnd

MsgBox(64, "Success", "Detected left click held more than 500msec.")

There may be some slick Windows API to tell if an actual object (text, file name, etc.) is being dragged, but that would require an answer from smarter people than me.
