    Draggable window/panel?

      Hi, I wonder is there any way to do this: when an user clicks on a button in my Flex application, a layout, such as Panel, containing textbox and buttons will be created. However, different to a Panel layout, this layout can be dragged around (even better if it has Close, Maximize button like a normal window). I tried all layout in the Components list but it seems that none can do that.
      Can anyone please help me with this? Thank you very much.

          Try this. It's not quite what you asked for, but you should be able to build on it nicely. It consists of two files. The first is a component. The second is an application. This will give you model pop-up window.

          Enjoy :-)

          First file: myPopUp.mlxm (MXML component based on a "TitleWindow")

          <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
          <mx:TitleWindow xmlns:mx=" http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml"
          close="PopUpManager.removePopUp(this)" showCloseButton="true"
          layout="vertical" width="300" height="300">


          import mx.managers.PopUpManager;



          Second file: myApp.mxml (MXML application)

          <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
          <mx:Application xmlns:mx=" http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" xmlns:local="*">


          import mx.managers.PopUpManager;

          private var myWindow: myPopUp;

          private function showMyPopUp( title: String): void
          myWindow = myPopUp( PopUpManager.createPopUp( this, myPopUp, true ) );
          myWindow.title = title;

          <mx:Panel title="Tree Control Example" height="75%" width="75%"
          <mx:Button label="Open my window" click="showMyPopUp('My space monkey');"/>

            Thank you :) The TitleWindow works pretty well.
