    Client and I are making great use of popup dialogs to show additional information and for entering configuration and tuneup data. I'd like to take this technique to the next level where the end user would be able to drag a popup to a convenient location so it's not blocking critical information on the main screen behind.

    This can be very useful, in that instead of cluttering a given screen with as much as possible, one could simply provide and over view widget (i.e. some combination indicators) which when clicked could popup details that could remain. This would require that the operator have the ability to reposition and resize the window as desired/required.

    I have not found a way of obtaining realtime mouse data nor a way of writing such data to position and scale properties of the window such that it would be redrawn at the new location.

    Please let me know if this is possible. If not please add this to some kind of wish list as it would be very useful to all codesys users/customers.

    Create a visualization object and set its properties to "Dialog"
    Create a button, InputConfiguratioin=>OnMouseDown=>OpenDialog
