Re: VS: Position of sub-windows


Hi Otso,
I have five screens to handle. You can guess what that can mean, when every time the window pops up somewhere else.

With my soft I have managed it like this: Every window knows on what screen it is and
where. If I loose my windows (they may be ouside the visible area), I press "W" for 'Windows' while starting my Programs and all windows are cascaded on the main/starting windows. I too, keep the coordinates of each window inside an "*.ini-file", so I can correct things manually. And - as a benefit - my windows have "magnets", that means that they stick together when they come very close to each other.

With a software so great there should be at least a bit of it. A really great tool always needs a great handling... at least that is what I think about it.
Of course the crew is busy with a lot of other stuff, so we will have to wait. But I was just wanting to know 'if' and app. 'when' this will come into focus.

Hi Wolfgang,

This is a great proposal. It takes quite a bit of effort to arrange the windows each time you start the software.


For me, the most needed sib-windows are the RDS and IF windows. I have currently three monitors and two FDM-S2 receivers. I want to have all of the 2x4 virtual receivers active with these sub-windows nicely placed on certain places. Some of the RDS windows tend to go hide outside of the visible screen area…


I think all the sub-windows (and even the settings window) should have their coordinates relative to the SW2 main window. Only the main window position would need to be stored with fixed coordinates.

Aihe: [elad_sdr_en] Position of sub-windows




Hello all!

Having the ELAD FDM DUO for 3 weeks I have learned that is is better in
all ways than my FT-857D and IC-720. Glad to have a radio where
receiving is "just point 'n' do".
And I am still a beginner to this radio. Best Buy for me!

Of course there are things that could improove. For me it is a bad thing
that almost all sub-windows can not remeber their position. I have more
than one monitor connected and it is no fun to hunt over the screens to
where the window has popped up.
Those are "Setup", "FDM-DUO Stand Alone Control", "DX-ClusterInterface",
"Station List", "Contacts" a.s.o.

Is there a plan to make all windows remember their positions?
