Introduction

What is a Window?

A window is a frame with added features like a titlebar and minimize buttons. Windows have a "client area" to display children, any area outside of which can be used to drag the window. In contrast to all other element types, a window's border area is an outer border, outside the defined window area. lguiwindow (Data Type) is used to provide access via LavishScript.

Using Windows

Windows are descendants of the frame element type. Any attributes of the frame element type may be applied in addition to the window-specific properties described below.
