Moves the window animated.
On macOS we use Apples functions for animated move. On Windows we have our own code.


Moves a window:

MBS("Window.Move"; $WindowRef; 300; 200)

Move window to first screen:

Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS( "Window.Move"; Get(WindowName); MBS( "Screen.Left"; 0 )+20; MBS( "Screen.Top"; 0 )+32) ]

Move window to second screen:

Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS( "Window.Move"; Get(WindowName); MBS( "Screen.Left"; 1 )+20; MBS( "Screen.Top"; 1 )+32) ]
