|Subject: 3.128 - opening offscreen? Mon Oct 26, 2009 2:46 am|| |
I've just upgraded from 3.125 to 3.128 and when I run MC I get the splash screen and then after it goes away... nothing? The app is running, process is in Task Manager, I can preview it in Win7 by hovering over task bar icon, but the MC app window is not visible.
I had a quick look in the config.xml for some sort of window positioning setting and found these:
but after removing the values, they reset to the above.
Anyway, I shoved 100, 100 in as values and managed to get it opening on-screen but kinda weird that for some reason it reset itself to those bizarre settings?

Billy did we put in a test for this issue to see if the screen XY was valid on startup, I can't remember if it was implemented in the end or not?

I've just identified the cause of this, -32000 is returned as the screen location when it is closed while minimised, ive just added a few lines that restore the program if it is minimised on exit.
During startup the config file is loaded, or created after which I added code to check that the form location is within the bounds of the display, and if not it is reset to 0,0. It seems that there is a logic error with this, I'll fix it for the next build.
