OE 11.6.3 (64): Dual monitors and initial position of new fo

Posted by Stefan Marquardt on 05-Sep-2017 08:21

Is there a trick available that I can get an OpenEdge application (no .net) to open new windows on the right screen when I have a dual screen system without changing any line of code?
It could be opened first time on the left monitor but when I move it to the right one, new forms should use absolute positions relative to the right monitor.

You can’t get the .NET out of the Progress client. If you want it or not 😊
So I see no reason, why you cannot use the System.Windows.Forms.Screens:AllScreens array to obtain information about the available screens.
Any as far as I know, setting the X and Y coordinates of a Progress window follows the same dimensions as the .NET screens array provides.
