ControlMove

Moves or resizes a control.

ControlMove X, Y, Width, Height, Control, WinTitle, WinText, ExcludeTitle, ExcludeText

Parameters

X, Y

Type: Integer

The X and Y coordinates (in pixels) of the upper left corner of Control's new location. If either coordinate is blank, Control's position in that dimension will not be changed. The coordinates are relative to the upper-left corner of the target window's client area; ControlGetPos can be used to determine them.

Width, Height

Type: Integer

The new width and height of Control (in pixels). If either parameter is blank or omitted, Control's size in that dimension will not be changed.

Control

Type: String, Integer or Object

The control's ClassNN, text or HWND, or an object with a Hwnd property. For details, see The Control Parameter.

WinTitle

Type: String, Integer or Object

A window title or other criteria identifying the target window. See WinTitle.

WinText

Type: String

If present, this parameter must be a substring from a single text element of the target window (as revealed by the included Window Spy utility). Hidden text elements are detected if DetectHiddenText is ON.

ExcludeTitle

Type: String

Windows whose titles include this value will not be considered.

ExcludeText

Type: String

Windows whose text include this value will not be considered.

Error Handling

An exception is thrown if the window or control could not be found or the change could not be applied.

Remarks

To improve reliability, a delay is done automatically after every use of this function. That delay can be changed via SetControlDelay.

Window titles and text are case sensitive. Hidden windows are not detected unless DetectHiddenWindows has been turned on.
