Can a VID window find out where it is located?
I have a feeling I know the answer, but I just can't remember...
I know that one can position a window to a specified location:
view layout/offset [...] 100x100
I know that a program can find the screen size of the monitor with system/view/screen-face/size.
What I want to do is to find out where a window currently is located, in case the operator dragged it around on the screen. If I can find that, then I can save it when the program quits, and load it when the program starts again, so that I can view the window in the same position where it was the last time the program ran. Something like:
NEW-POSITION: load %last-window-position.txt
view layout/offset [...] NEW-POSITION

Sorry to bother. It seems that answers come to me after I have gone through the work of formulating the question. Here is the answer, and I will write it down so I don't forget it:
R E B O L [
Title: "VID test harness"
WHERE-AM-I: does [
print ["I am at " MAIN-WINDOW/offset]
QUIT-BUTTON: does [
save LAST-LOC-FILE LAST-LOC
if exists? LAST-LOC-FILE [
LAST-LOC: load LAST-LOC-FILE
MAIN-WINDOW: layout/offset [
banner "Find my location"
button 200 "Where am I" [WHERE-AM-I]
button 200 "Quit" [QUIT-BUTTON]
