Moving Window Problem

Hi...
I don't know if I can explain this problem clearly as English is not my native language... :-D
My system uses 2 monitors...
The Primary monitor is a LCD monitor with 1680x1050 resolution, positioned on the right...
The Secondary monitor is a LCD TV with 1360x768 resolution, positioned on the left...
Both are aligned at the bottom, so the LCD TV have "less height"... :-D
I use ZoomPlayer to view my videos on my LCD TV, I usually move ZP's window to the secondary monitor using DP's hotkey...
Maybe there are some "incompatibilities" between DP and ZP...
Because when I move the ZP window using hotkey, it resulted something like the attachment picture...
I think it's the method of ZP in maintaining ZP's windows state...
That's not a problem though, cause I always change ZP to fullscreen via ALT+ENTER, and it would enter fullscreen mode in my secondary monitor...
The problem started with DP3.0...
The ZP window would move to the secondary monitor like always...
But when I hit ALT+ENTER, it didn't enter fullscreen mode...
Instead it's minimized...
No ZP windows visible except in the taskbar...
If I drag the ZP window to the secondary monitor, and then hit ALT+ENTER...
It would enter fullscreen mode...
Seems the problem occurs only if I move it using DP's hotkey...
Any change of method between DP2.2.1 and DP3.0.0..? :?
Thanx in advanced...

I'm also experiencing this problem with 3.0.1. In my case, the PowerDVD window gets positioned to the right of the screen when I move it to the next screen and maximize. The problem only happens when it's on the secondary screen, though.

Well, this only seems to be happening to PowerDVD. If I maximize a Windows Explorer window to the next monitor, it works fine.

Anyway, I reverted back to Display Fusion 2.1.1 and PowerDVD is now fine.

Thanx !
Now when I use hotkeys to move windows from #1 (1680x1050) to #2 (1360x768), it it sized correctly...
While moving from #2 to #1, the window will stay @1360x768... :-D
No biggie though...
But I still can't enter Full Screen state if I move the window using hotkeys...
The application window just dissapeared, as if it's minimized...
Please check attachment.... :-D
This again only happens with ZoomPlayer, can't test PowerDVD as I didn't use it...

Update...
I did a little test...
I started ZP, moved it using hotkeys...
Try to enter Full Screen state using ALT+ENTER...
And the window "dissapeared" as expected...
Then I close ZP via taskbar...
And re-run ZP it...
Voila, ZP started in Full Screen state in monitor #2...
So ZP did enter Full Screen state...
Yet it didn't show, as if it's being overlayed by something... :?

Another update... :-D
MPC works fine...
So there is definitely a problem with ZP+DP working together...
But how come Full Screen works with DP2.2.1..?
Any significant changes in the command..?
Thanx ! :-D

I have a similar problem. It seems to happen when move a maximized window over to one ot the other monitors. Usually I am moving the center image to either the left or right monitor. Then the center monitor has the task bar in about the middle of the screen, and the application windows even maximized only use the top half of the screen. If I use restore of a windowed app I can slide it down to also use the lower half, but the task bar floats on top of it in the center of the monitor.

I also can't exit DisplayFusion from the systray, I have to use the Task Manager to get the screens to look normal again.

I am using the 3/7/09 build.

Window movement issues and taskbar locking issues have been addressed in the next release (version 3.0.2) and should be released later this week. Thanks!

No go Jon... :-(
Did more testing...
It DID worked perfectly...
Only in this condition though...

Code



While my display setting is...

Code



Notice the "Point Min X: -1360" in my setting, coz the seconday monitor is on the left...
So my theory is...
The window moved fine to the secondary monitor using hotkeys, that means it at "PosX: -1360"...
But when I hit ALT+ENTER to enter Fullscreen state, somehow DP/ZP/PDVD "assume" that the ZP window is in "PosX: 0"...
So the Fullscreen state will be shifted to to yet another "PosX: -1360", so another 1360 pixel to the left...
That kinda makes sense, since the Fullscreen state is active, yet not visible...
Because it's in "PosX: -2720"...
I noticed this while testing with PowerDVD...
I saw a little of the top-right window of PowerDVD on the bottom-left corner of my secondary monitor when I enter Fullscreen state...
That kinda backs my so called theory...
CMIIW...

EDIT :
It's possible that ZP/PDVD/DF didn't/can't track the window position if it's moved using DF hotkeys...
So it's always "PosX: 0"...

Feel free to "fix" other problems first... :-D
There's a workaround for this problem, so no biggie...
Thanx...

Forgive me for replying to an old topic, but I am cleaning up the forum. This topic is being locked and archived because it applies to an older version of DisplayFusion. If you are using the latest version of DisplayFusion and would still like some assistance, please create a new topic and I'll be happy to help you out. Thanks!
