    Get functions relating to screen size

    martinbrewer

      Product and version 14.0.3

      Windows 7

      Description - All get functions for window/desktop/content max out at 1900x1080

      How to replicate - simply use get functions on desktop larger than 1900x1080 (2880x1620)

          I guess Get(ScreenScaleFactor) is not 1 on the machine.

          (And 1900 is typo for 1920)

            Thank you for your post.

             

            On my Windows 7 machine, in the Control Panel -> Display, the maximum screen resolution is 1600 x 1200.  After launching FileMaker Pro 14.0.3 and opening a file, Get (ScreenWidth) and Get (ScreenHeight) returns 1600 and 1200, respectively.

             

            As per forum member "19752 developer", what does Get (ScreenScaleFactor) return?

             

            Is there a secondary monitor attached?

             

            Any other information you can provide may be helpful in narrowing down the cause.

              Hi TSGal,

              I have only one monitor, on an MSI GT60 laptop.

              Native resolution of the screen is 2880 x 1620.

              Zoom is set to 100%

              .

              The following Get functions return the following:

              Get (Screen xxx) - 1920 x 1080

              Get (Windowcontent xxx) - 1885.6667  x 927.66667

              Get (WindowDesktop xxx) - 1905 x 1023.

               

              Get (ScreenScaleFactor) = 1.5

               

              Opening a new window at 1920 x 1080, puts it off the screen, so I've learnt something today!

              Thanks for your help, I'll have a closer look into the Get(ScreenScaleFactor), and its implications.

               

              Cheers
