Click one spot to move window

Recommended Posts


Is it possible to make a 15px x 15px square in my GUI that I can click on to move the window around?

My GUI has no boarders, and large buttons. I just need a small place I can use to move the window around.

Take a look at this - the red square (and only the red square) drags the whole GUI:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500, -1, -1, $WS_POPUP)
GUISetBkColor(0x00FFFF, $hGUI)

$hLabel = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 10, 15, 15, -1, $GUI_WS_EX_PARENTDRAG)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFF0000)


While 1

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE


The secret is the PARENTDRAG extended style.
