Well... on the system that I am running, we have a 17" crt and it's resolution is 1024x768, which is what you coded for. Sorry to say that it was a little short sighted.scgallafent wrote:You are correct that it sets a minimum window size.joelearl wrote:Update - when I checked my screen resolution, I found it was set to 1024x768, but could go higher. Since I am a resolution junkie, I cranked it up to the max of 1280x1024. And lo, the window was then resizable. So I guess the change mentioned by scgallafent was to the *minimum* size, and when my screen was only that big it could not go any smaller.
Last week, I noticed that the Send/Receive button is hidden by the Windows XP task bar when running at 1024x768. (Now you know what we're running in my clerk's office.) The window size has been adjusted slightly in MLS 3.7.4 so that the button isn't hidden in that situation.
The coders forgot about the windows taskbar at the bottom of the screen. That takes up space.
Now that your application is set to a minimum of 1024 x 768, it takes up the whole screen and sits behind the toolbar. This covers all the buttons at the bottom of the program, like close, print, print preview, send and receive, etc. What are we to do?
The only option we have is to auto hide the windows taskbar so we can see what is going on. This is going to confuse others using the system, since they will be looking for a toolbar that is not there.
Please consider reducing the minimum size to 1024 x (768 - taskbar height)
Sorry if this seems like a rant on the developers, but if they are developing for a screen resolution of 1024.768, they must remember there are operating system items on the screen that are not easily hidden by the average user.
