 Made by: Peeter Tvauri
 Date: 22.04.2009
 Description: This script will make a custom title bar.
     First, draw the title bar image you created on the
     screen by using tiles, backgrounds, sprites or whatever
     you want. 
     If you want to make titlebar buttons, like Exit, Maximize
     and Minimize, then you should add global.CanDrag = false;
     when the button is pressed, and global.CanDrag = true;
     when the global mouse button is released. Or else it would
     let you drag while pressing the mouse button while its on
     the exit, or whatever button.
     Then run the script with correct arguments and you're done!
     Argument0 - Titlebar Height
     Argument1 - Caption Text Font
     Argument2 - Caption Text Size
     Argument3 - Caption Text Color
     Argument4 - Caption Text Bold (True/False)
     Argument5 - Caption Text Italics (True/False)
     Argument6 - Caption Text
     Argument7 - Caption Text X position
     Argument8 - Caption Text Y position
 /* Creating the variables */
 global.TitleBarHeight = argument0;
 global.CaptionTextFont = argument1;
 global.CaptionTextSize = argument2;
 global.CaptionTextColor = argument3;
 global.CaptionTextBold = argument4;
 global.CaptionTextItalics = argument5;
 global.CaptionText = argument6;
 global.CaptionTextXpos = argument7;
 global.CaptionTextYpos = argument8;
 global.CanDrag = true;
 /* Adding the object */
 objDrag = object_add();
 /* Create event for the object */
 object_event_add(objDrag,ev_create,0, "
      xx = 0; /* Some variables */
      yy = 0;
      Drag = false;
 /* End Step */     
 object_event_add(objDrag,ev_step,ev_step_end, "
      if (Drag) && (global.CanDrag)  { /* If Drag is true, then.. */
       window_set_position(window_get_x()+mouse_x-xx,window_get_y()+mouse_y-yy); }
       /* Setting the new window position */
 /* Global Mouse Left Pressed */             
 object_event_add(objDrag,ev_mouse,ev_global_left_press, "
         /* If the mouse's Y position is smaller than
         global.TitleBarHeight then... */
       if mouse_y < global.TitleBarHeight {
          Drag = true; /* You can drag it now */
          xx = mouse_x;
          yy = mouse_y;
          }    ");     
 /* Global Mouse Left Released */       
 object_event_add(objDrag,ev_mouse,ev_global_left_release, "
       if (Drag) { /* If you released left button and you were dragging, then.. */
        Drag = false; } /* not dragging anymore */
 /* Draw */             
       /* Drawing the caption */
       draw_set_color(global.CaptionTextColor); /* Setting the color */
255)); /* Setting the font */
global.CaptionText); /* Drawing the text */ ");
 /* We created the object. Now its time to create the instance somewhere in the room. */
