Location (Loc) Property


set the loc[ation] of <object> to <x, y>
Applies to all objects, backgrounds, cards, card windows, message box, toolbar


The location property determines the position of an object on the screen. The object's position is measured in pixels and is expressed as an x, y screen coordinate where x and y are positive integers representing pixels. For card windows and the toolbar, the coordinates correspond to the upper left corner of the object relative to the upper left corner of the screen. For all other objects, these coordinates correspond to the center of the object relative to the upper left corner of the card.


If you want to move a card on the screen, set the location property for the card window of the current stack, not the location of the card.


To change the location of the toolbar, type the following lines in the Message Box and press Enter after each: get the location of toolbar add 100 to item 2 of it set the location of toolbar to it To return the toolbox to its original position, choose Reset Toolbar from the Navigation menu.
