View list of data type meanings


This function moves and resizes the current world's window.

Specify the left and top co-ordinates in pixels.

Specify the width and height of the window in pixels.

Note that if you move the window off the screen (eg. to -1000, -1000) it will become invisible.

No checking is performed on the arguments to this function.

The co-ordinates are relative to the client area of the main MUSHclient window.

In other words, position 1, 1 is the very top-left corner of the MUSHclient frame window.

To specify a window other than the first window either use Lua (see below) or the function MoveWorldWindowX.

Note: Available in version 3.54 onwards.

VBscript example
MoveWorldWindow 1, 1, 640, 480
Jscript example
MoveWorldWindow (1, 1, 640, 480)
Lua example
MoveWorldWindow (1, 1, 640, 480, 2) -- move 2nd window
Lua notes
Lua has an optional 5th argument which is the window number to move. The first (main) window is window 1.

If you do Window -> New Window then you will get more windows, these will be 2, 3, 4 and so on.

You can use GetInfo (235) to find how many windows are currently open.
Returns None.
Introduced in version 3.54
