His example flickers a lot...by (Login The-Universe)
It does work but with a larger window, it would require a lot of flicker reduction. Of course, it needs a mouse in place of the arrow functions, too. It is an interesting example of how to move a window.
The Christmas wish list for QB still remains color support and page flipping for graphics screens. It kind of amazes me SCREEN 0 is superior in both of those aspects.
So I'm at a crossroads here. I either go text, which I'm used to or I switch to graphics, which I'm not used to manipulating WP functions in. I get plenty of PCOPY use in text and I'm real limited in Graphics to screen 9. The fact that graphics can be redrawn faster might make that not so bad.
This isn't any crucial project, just some fun stuff I'm fiddling with. I have a more serious program I have to patch today but it isn't nearly as much fun to patch stuff as it is to create stuff you haven't done before. I have made plenty of popup and reizable windows for SCREEN 0 in the past but this is the first time moving one.
What I'm really happy to see is all the various responses to the post. I kid a lot at this forum but I spend my time here because there are so many active minds that contribute code and ideas.
Keep um coming,
