    Store the popup location of propertiesform Reply

    Hi at all,

    I've searched so much, but i can not find a answer, maybe someone of you know it!

    Is there a way, to store the location i.e of the "Edit Instance Properties" form?
    The hiStoreFormLocation function don't works in this case!  With this function, i was able to define all other windows i need, but not the propertyforms!

    My Problem here is, that we have 2 monitors and my mainmonitor is the right one, but this propertywindows always opens on the upper left corner on the left screen and i want to have it on the right screen, thats a little explanation why i need this!!

    Thanks for your help!

    Best Regards

    Are you talking about the layout or schematic properties form? Which version is it you're using?

    If it's the  layout edit properties form, then this definitely won't work - which is what my guess is. The form is not a SKILL form; it's a Motif form, and as such can't be controlled with the normal SKILL hi functions.

    If you were using IC613, you could use the Property Assistant (Window->Assistants->Property Editor) which is a persistent assistant, which you can then maximize your screen area by using the F11 key (Windows->Workspaces->Show/Hide Assistants) to toggle the assistants on or off.

    Regards,

    Andrew.

    You are already right, I'm talking about the layout properties form!

    The version we use is the IC510!

    I already thought that there is no solution!

    But you wrote, that the forms couldn't controlled with the Skill functions, is there maybe another way to define this??
    I think, that there must be a file, where this location is defined or I'm wrong?

    Thanks for your answer!

    There's a recent enhancement CCR, 713815, asking for a control over the location. However, given the response to a previous CCR (634022), the idea is that the form will ultimately be replaced (somewhere down the line in the IC6.X generation of tools) with a Qt-based form, which will solve this problem, I doubt something specific for the property editor will be added. Certainly not in IC5141.

    Currently there is no way to control this in IC5141 or IC613.

    Regards,

    Andrew.
