XPSnap V1.1 Drag window to edges (Aero Snap)

29 Sep 2013, 22:14

I searched the forum for a script that mimics Windows 7 Aero Snap. I found one that uses hot keys but I wanted one that uses the mouse. So I wrote one.
Click on the window titlebar and drag to any edge. The program takes into account the position and size of the taskbar.

I posted 2 scripts. The only difference between the two is that script 1 has no new window size preview and script 2 does. I also added a hotkey to exit the program on script 2.

Let me know of any problems. I only tested it in WinXP.

thanks

Script 1 - Click titlebar and drag window to edge. Release LButton and window will resize. No new window size preview.

Code: Select all

;Usage: Click on a titlebar and drag the window to any edge of the screen. Release the button while on the edge if you want to resize the window.

SysGet, MonitorWorkArea, MonitorWorkArea ;get dimensions of screen minus taskbar

CoordMode, Mouse, Screen
Return
*~Lbutton up::
CoordMode, Mouse, Screen
MouseGetPos, XstopPos, YstopPos, ;get the position of the mouse when the left click is released
sleep 100 ;Internet Explorer does not resize properly without a delay
;Preserve a 3X3 area on each corner to prevent confusion whether to position window on which side
;If (YstopPos>MonitorWorkAreaTop+3) mouse is at least 3 from top edge
;If (YstopPos<(MonitorWorkAreaBottom-3) mouse is at least 3 from bottom edge
;If (XstopPos>(MonitorWorkAreaLeft+3)) mouse is at least 3 from left edge
;If (XstopPos<(MonitorWorkAreaRight-3)) mouse is at least 3 from right edge
