  1. here’s the code for you to copy and paste:

    window;
    formLayout form;
    channelBox mrblake;
    formLayout -e
    -af mrblake “top” 0
    -af mrblake “left” 0
    -af mrblake “right” 0
    -af mrblake “bottom” 0
    form;
    showWindow;

  2. actually the right code is:

    window;
    formLayout form;
    channelBox dave;
    formLayout -e
    -af dave “top” 0
    -af dave “left” 0
    -af dave “right” 0
    -af dave “bottom” 0
    form;
    showWindow;

    next time copy it correctly from the docs 🙂

    That’s a really cool tool. Thanks a lot.
    The only think is, when you have a floating Chanel box, you lose the right click option, right?
    At least that’s the behavior I’m getting here.

    Cheers,
