Navigator Position (and two monitor window positions)

Post by David Morris » Wed Jun 15, 2005 4:14 am

G'day.

Still think Zeus is the best IDE I have worked with, even though I have to deal regularly with this minor glitch (which I may have mentioned in passing before).

I have a two monitor setup, with the right hand monitor being my 'main' screen which means that the left is in negative window co-ordinate space.

I usually undock the navigator window, and place it on the left monitor while working on a maximised or near (or some times) near maximised window on the right monitor.

When restarting Zeus the navigator left start position ends up a position 0 (so is goes back to the right monitor).

Occasionally, it (the navigator) just disappears altogether, and I have to play around with the Zeus INI file to get it back... this seems to work:

(Replace section [Object ID: 385] with)
[Object ID: 385]
State=9
X=-259
Y=-14
CX=255
CY=906

(But it will rever to X=0 after restart.)

In addition, (so this is probably a separate bug), once I have the navigator on the left, and the Zues main window maximised, if I restart Zeus, (presumably updating the INI file), and move the navigator to the left monitor (since it has been moved back to the right monitor on restart), and then normalise the window (as in not max or min size) the window takes on some odd dimensions - it looks like it becomes as wide as the total of the left position of the navigator and the right hand side of the screen, and so I have to move it across and re-size it so I can see the right have of the window.

G'day David,
Still think Zeus is the best IDE I have worked with ...
Thank you for your kind works :D
even though I have to deal regularly with this minor glitch (which I may have mentioned in passing before).

You certainly have and I can guarantee this bug will definitely be fixed in the next release.
When restarting Zeus the navigator left start position ends up a position 0 (so is goes back to the right monitor).

Zeus multi-monitor support was added quite some time ago and at the time I thought it had been thoughrouly tested, but unfortunately this has turned out to not be the case :(

For the next release the testing will be better :)
Occasionally, it (the navigator) just disappears altogether
I ran into a situation where I switch from a multi-monitor to a single monitor system and Zeus disappeared altogether. So also new to in the next release is logic to make sure Zeus and all its dialogs are always located on at least one monitor.

As you have found editing the INI file will get things working again.
In addition, (so this is probably a separate bug), ...

I will make sure this bug is also gone :wink:

Cheers Jussi

Just as a follow up, I have found the repeatable cause of the undocked navigator disappearing from the left monitor. Close Zeus (right click menu from the task bar Icon) when Zeus is minimised.

Hope this helps.

This bug should now be fixed in the latest Zeus for Windows release.

Jussi
