    How to customize icfb start-up with 2 monitors? Reply

    I have just started working with a 2 monitor PC system.

    I am running Windows XP locally, and connecting to the Linux server over XMing, or PuTTy. When I start icfb, the CIW and all pop-ups from the CIW are placed between the 2 monitors, as opposed to either the right or left monitor.

    How do I rectify this, so that icfb opens in one monitor or the other? I am assuming that there is some way of specifying either the position, or the screen in either the .cdsenv, or .cdsinit files.

    Many Thanks

    Adam

    Adam,

    Look in <ICinstDir>/doc/dfIIconfig/dfIIconfig.pdf and search for formPlacement and optionFormPlacement (also formRelativeTo and optionFormRelativeTo).

    Regards,

    Andrew.

    Thanks, that pointed me in the right direction. The CIW now opens where I want it, still can't get Dialog boxes to open where I want them, but at least I know where to look for the answer now :-)

     Thanks

    Adam
