Can I lock pygame window position

JasonChicoJasonChico Posts: 3Member
I am using python for a user interface with a remote controlled vehicle through a network socket. The system works great except for one thing. If I try to move the window it crashes my program. I know exactly what is causing the problem too. When I verify the socket connection I send an iterated variable in each packet of data that I send. The receiving program checks the number to verify it has changed.

It appears that the python program is blocked while the window is being moved, which causes the vehicles program to timeout and terminate the socket. I am going to modify the vehicles control code to handle the timeout without killing the program.

[b][u]MY QUESTION FOR YOU[/u][/b]
I would also like to configure the window to open in a specific area of the screen AND I would like to lock it into place. I found a RESIZABLE flag but I couldn't get it to work for some reason and I'm not sure that will fix my problem. I am running python 2.6.5 on a windows 7 machine.

Any help would be appreciated!
