documentation for GuiCreate error

Reported by: martin Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: GuiCreate documentation Cc:


The help says

You can enable window draging for GUI without $WS_CAPTION by using $WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT in the exStyle parameter.

This is not correct, or at least it is not obvious how that style helps with dragging.

MSDN says

WS_EX_CONTROLPARENT   Allows the user to navigate among the child windows of the window by using the TAB key.

The documentation is correct. You're making the assumption (a reasonable assumption!) that things work like MSDN describes. Unfortunately somebody decided that it would be a good idea to overload that particular extended style to provide some custom behavior hard-coded into AutoIt.

In other words, it works as our documentation describes due to a poor design decision.
