      New window outside of main window?

      Post

      Hi,

      I have a script to open a small box of the main order menu for customers to input there name.  It works ok but the problem is it opens in the main window but cant get it to go outside of it. 

      I have a dual monitor setup one on top of the other and the customer sees the top one so cant stretch the fm program window as they customer will see all the menu bar etc.

      How do i get it to open a floating window which can be moved anywhere even outside of the FM main window?

       

      cheers
