Tracking External Window Position

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to find if there's a better way to track the position (to be more exact, when the position changes) of an external window (in this case and AIM chat room).

Presently I'm making an AutoIt GUI stay on top of the chat room by using the GUI's While...Wend loop to store the window's coordinates and to move the GUI if the window's coordinates change... This gets the job done, but isn't the most ideal scenario.

I know this topic was discussed a little bit in: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=66566 but it doesn't appear that any solid solution came of it.

Is there anyway to utilize WM_WINDOWPOSCHANGING or WM_WINDOWPOSCHANGED against an external non-AutoIt-created window?

Or maybe this has already been discussed and all the searching I've done just hasn't yielded it?
