    Centered Docking for dialog box?? Using MX

    sarah louise water

      Hi

       

      Could anyone please help??

       

      I have a small dialog box type movie that opens when a user presses Exit. (It's just to confirm that they really want to exit).

      I have no problem on my pc, it is a 640 x 480 environment which is full screen when run, the exit dialog opens in the centre of the screen.

      However on any other size screen, it is off-centred.

      I have tried the option of centred in the properties, but it will not save with that option checked??

       

      Can anyone explain this irritation??

       

       

      many thanks

          The button that opens it should provide a rect for the window. Or the window could determine this itself when opened. For example, in a movie script in the MIAW place the following handlers:

          on openWindow
            aw = the activeWindow
            aw.rect = mCenterRectInRect(aw.sourceRect, (the desktopRectList)[1])
          end
          
          on mCenterRectInRect r1, r2
            return rect(r2.width - r1.width, r2.height - r1.height, r2.width + r1.width, r2.height + r1.height)/2
          end
