There are two types of widget positions:
- Global positions
- Local positions
A local position is a position relative to the origin of the current widget. Local positions are used for all widget positions. This allows you to move a widget have all of its children stay in their relative positions.
A global position is a position relative to the origin of the screen. (Remember, in a windowed environment like X, the position of the window is the origin of the screen.) Global positions are not stored any way but you can convert to and from them using the TWidget functions: MakeGlobal and MakeLocal.
