    Window flashes

    KylePutzier

      When I need to create a temporary window while a script runs and I do not want the screen to flash, I set the window to open off screen (Top= -1000, Left = -1000). This works just fine. Is this the normally accepted method to keep the screen from flashing?

          That is a fairly standard procedure. You should be aware, however, that Windows handles windows differently than Macs do in this regard; if you have a Windows window maximized then open a new window offscreen your onscreen window will un-maximize - you'll need to maximize that again after you close the offscreen window.

           

          One other thing, you may want to increase you distance offscreen in case of multiple monitors. With the settings you're using if the user has FM on a "right" monitor it would be possible to see the window on the left monitor. Try 10000 instead.
