    I'm trying to get the position of a utility editor window (EditorWindow.ShowUtility) but the returned position has x and y as zero unless the mouse moves away from the title bar (in which case the position gets correctly updated).

    I've included some logging in the Update() method of my EditorWindow subclass and it seems that this is what's happening:

    - window position reported correctly
    - start moving window by dragging its title bar
    - window position reported as having x=0 and y=0
    - if at this point the window is closed, the position remains the same (x=0, y=0)
    - if moving the mouse away from the title bar, position gets updated to the right value

    This looks like a bug, any ideas for a workaround?

    I ended up having a button inside the window and asking the user to click that button.

    I just submitted this bug (Case 977595), since it's still an issue and it would be nice if this was finally fixed.
    It's really annoying when you expect that getter to return a value and you just can't trust it.

    2019 and this is still an issue. I can't find the case on Google. @GlitchedPolygons , any chance you have a direct link?

    It turns out you can access the actual position reliably with reflection, using:

    Code (CSharp):
    1. window.m_Parent.window.position;
