Standalone Windows Resource?

    I am using CLIM 1.0 (27.5) under Genera 8.1.1

    I would like to pop-up a window over my application frame
    which has :scroll-bars :both and whose size I can determine.
    I can use OPEN-WINDOW-STREAM & WINDOW-EXPOSE to display the
    window.  But if I want it to appear under the cursor I need to 
    be able to move its location and re-size it OR be able to
    return the window to the "window-resource" and then create
    a new one with the size and location I desire.

    I guess what I am looking for is a window analog to WITH-MENU
    & MENU-CHOSE-FROM-DRAWER which has both scroll bars and gives
    me control over its size.  Anyone know how to do something 
    like this.

Even in 1.0 you should have the functions

These size and position windows. Note the the edge coordinates in
CLIM:WINDOW-SET-INSIDE-EDGES are relative to the window's parent.

Also, don't forget to provide :save-under T to CLIM:OPEN-WINDOW-STREAM.

I hope that helps a bit.
