vrf maximized runtime window

Question asked by VRFuser on Apr 17, 2000

VEE resizes the display window at startup, so regardless of what you set in
the shortcut window properties dialog, the display will change when VEE
initializes the main panel, unless you set the -maximized switch in the
shortcut's command line (not in the shortcut's window properties).

The "-maximized" switch is a VEE Runtime command-line arguement that needs
to be entered in the "Target" field for the shortcut.

Say you have a shortcut to an application titled MyApp.vxe.  The shortcut
target might look like this:
"C:DevelopmentVEEMyApp.vxe"

To force this to run maximized, you need to call veerun.exe with
the -maximize switch before the actual .vxe filename, which might look
something like:
"C:ProgramsVEEveerun.exe" -maximized "C:DevelopmentVEEMyApp.vxe"

Hope this helps.

Randy, i tried as you said and created a shortcut and set the properties to
maximized in the property window, but when i call the shortcut, it will
flash a mazimized window and then it will go to a minimized window (which is
the main panel) and shows initialzation of the control loop control, then
once the program is D/Ld to the vxi chasis, then i can maximized the main
panel and see everything on the main panel.  Now i am using one main panel
with several other panels on it for the indicators and labels and such.

We are using WinNt workstation 4.0 if that makes any diffrence.

thanks for the reply and thanks to everyone else who has replied to my
question, all  the tips help a lot.

The easiest way I know of to do this is to edit the shortcut to your runtime
application to include the maximize switch, as in:

Veerun.exe -maximize MyApp.vxe

I do this for pretty much any VEE code I use.  Granted, this forces you to
use a shortcut, but it works.

Hey guys, I am sure that this question has gone around the loop many times
over, but I forgot how to make a runtime version of a program maximized at
intialization.  Right now when I click on the runtime icon of my program, I
get alittle program window while the initialization of the program takes
place, then when that is done I can maximize the program panel.  But I want
to be able to activate the runtime icon, and the window popup already
maximized.  Any help is appreciated, thanks
