How to move/resize a FlexTitleWindow in Silk4J

If you view the Silk4J API for the FlexTitleWindow (com.borland.silktest.jtf.flex.FlexTitleWindow) it shows a series of dragXXXX options that appear to be inherited from the parent FlexContainer (com.borland.silktest.jtf.flex.FlexContainer). Unfortunately these drag actions have no defining to/from co-ordinates and actually do not work  - this is a shortcoming of Flex rather than Silk4J. You can achieve the same effect by using pressMouse(), mouseMove() and releaseMouse() in sequence. The following code example shows how to drag the FlexTitleWindow:

// Grab a point on the title bar
desktop.<SparkTitleWindow>find(".//SparkTitleWindow[@caption='Title Window']").pressMouse(1,new Point (1,1));
// Move the mouse to the new position
desktop.<SparkTitleWindow>find(".//SparkTitleWindow[@caption='Title Window']").mouseMove(new Point (-200,50));
// Release the mouse at the new position
desktop.<SparkTitleWindow>find(".//SparkTitleWindow[@caption='Title Window']").releaseMouse(1,new Point (0,0));

Note that you need the Point in the releaseMouse call. For resizing the FlexTitleWindow you will need the following approach:

mouseMove to the resize handle position
pressMouse to grab the handle
mouseMove to the resize position
releaseMouse to complete the action.
