Detect window move

Post by dpatterson » Wed Feb 01, 2017 5:51 pm

Okay. This must be really simple and just haven't done the correct search.

How do I detect that a window/stack has been/is moving?

TIA
Dave

Hi Dave,

You can use "movestack" to know if stack is moving
For has been moving, just put "false" into a variable on openstack and set this variable to true when the stack is moving.
Best regards
Jean-Marc

If you want to get fancy for no good reason at all, if you happened to have a field you could watch this in the card script:

Code: Select all

on moveStack
   put the loc of this stack into fld 1
end moveStack
This works similarly to the fabulous "mouseMove" message.
