Get ( ScreenWidth ) in Fm 13

Discussion created by LucThomaere on Dec 9, 2013

Discovered that Get ( ScreenWidth ) in Filemaker 13 returns 0 when the active window is out of screen.


I'm using this technique for years in various situations, for example to use utility windows with a minimum of flickering, or to build a window that appears at once without seeing the "building" of it.

Is this a bug or has it a meaning?


The solution is easy (check the screenwidth (and height) in the starting script and remember them in a global variable) but it is odd.
