Detecting that a window is being dragged

5 posts in this topic

Is there a clever way to detect that a window, with handle $windowhandle, is being dragged? MouseGetCursor() doesn't seem to offer a solution, and GUIGetCursorInfo() only works on AutoIT windows.

Even a "detect that mouse left button is down at all" would be enough.

WinGetPos()?

Only works if the window has been stationary for some unacceptably long number of milliseconds - it won't detect that the window's title bar is still being dragged.

I didn't know that WinGetPos didn't return the position of a window while it is being dragged.

Assuming that is correct then maybe you could detect that the left mouse button is pressed with _IsPressed(01) and check to see if the mouse is over the window title bar, then, if it is, track the mouse position and translate that into the current window position.
