Hi all,
Does anyone know if there is any function that store the default top and default left coordinates of any element?? I mean that if any object has been moved dynamically from 8,8 to 300,300 by pressing a button and there is another button named "set to default" then how can I send the element back to 8,8?? Is there anything functions like defaultTop and defaultLeft?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Store the top and left before you move it.

ItsMeOnly: You've attached the script(Thank you for that) but you did not tell me how or what to use.

there are moveWin functions, resize*, minimize, and maximize that can solve your problems. I'm building set of associative arrays that are being updated with dimensions as the actions are taken, with a little of rewriting, you could use it for "setting default" (check minimize and maximize :: (maximized[] = 0)) and "restoring default" check (maximize :: (maximized[] = 1)) position (AND dimensions!)

ItsMeOnly: May be you didn't get my point but my query has nothing to do with window object.

a "window" here is nothing but "any object (that) has been moved dynamically"

you're given a set of functions to move it, store its position and dimensions, even track size of child elements if they would overflow after its size would have changed
