Windx screen size.
« on: February 19, 2019, 07:02:11 PM »
Hello Forum :

         With Providex Plus version 15.10 running on our CentOS Linux servers, now
we want to start modifying our character-based programs to GUI. When we install
and run the Windx plugin, version 15.10, and we run it, either on Windows, or on
Linux via Wine, the initial screen size is very small. Is there a parameter somewhere
that allows us to have Windx Connect and use more of the available monitor space?

         For example, my desktop monitor is a widescreen 22" model, and my resolution
is set to 1920 x 1080. When I Maximize the Windx window, the portion of the window
containing the telnet session remains the same. Even if I RUN "*nomads", the GUI window
comes up fine, but remains at the very small size relative to the available space on the monitor.
Is there some setting in an .INI file? The edges of the telnet window do not allow clicking and
dragging.

          Thanks,
          Bill.

The TypeSizeLoc entry in the section [WindowFrame] of your pvx.ini helps.
You can find a detailed documentation of the pvx.ini contents in the help file.
