Details Edit

  • As of 2.2 the screen coordinates are no longer relative to the TOPLEFT instead they are relative to closest screen position which can be TOPLEFT, TOP, TOPRIGHT, LEFT, CENTER, RIGHT, BOTTOMLEFT, BOTTOM and BOTTOMRIGHT be sure to use/save the relativePoint argument in addition to xOfs and yOfs for frame positioning or your frames will appear at the wrong place and even off the screen.
