    Stop TitleWindow from dragging


      I want to disable (and enable again) the dragging of the titlewindow that is created by a popupmanager.
      The thing is that .stopdrag(); does not work. Anybody knows how to disable the dragging of a titlewindow?

          can you live with no header on your window? If so, setting headerHeight="0" would be fastest way to get around this problem.

            No sorry, need to have a header, is there a way to block the mouse only on the header but not on the children that are in the titlewindow?

            p.s. the close window button should work :)

              I thought so! So let's get ready to extend Titlewindow class and override startDraggin() method. We leave the body empty; that is, we don't let this call go up to the parent class and lose dragging.

              Here is a non-dragable title window component:

              <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
              <mx:TitleWindow xmlns:mx=" http://www.adobe.com/2006/mxml" layout="absolute" width="400" height="300"
              showCloseButton="true" close="PopUpManager.removePopUp(this);">

              import mx.managers.PopUpManager;

              override protected function startDragging(event:MouseEvent):void {

                Overriding the function is the way to go. (I already had a dirty other workaround by firing the MOUSE_UP event when START dragging (but you can see some pixel shifting :)
