    Checking for Dual Monitors

      Checking for Dual Monitors

      Post

      Hi, my users usually use dual monitors when working with the filemaker database (they use either macbook pro or air).  Is there a way/command to determine if the are using dual monitors?  This would enable me to open up the detail windows on the other monitor. 

      Many thanks for any help.

          Not as far as I know, but I don't know everything.

          Is it always the same number of monitors for a given user's machine?

          If so, you can make a table of the values returned by Get ( PersistentID ) to identify each machine and then another field in the same table can record how many monitors are used with that machine.

          (Used to do something different in FMP 10 with user names to identify the one machine on the network that had two monitors...)
