Full screen/dual screen


    May 03 2006 | 12:32 pm
    We're having problems doing a full screen on a secondary screen.
    We're running the application on both a laptop and on a stationary pc(with Windows xp home edition). Both have the ability to do Dual Screen due to the graphic card. And then we stretch the max window all across both the windows.
    On the first screen we want it to be the interface where we can turn effects on and off. And the of course fullscreen on the other(projector), so the audience won't be able to see what we're turning on and off during the concert. And this actually works fine. UNTIL we press a button in our interface. When we do this, the window on the projector disappears.
    So here's my question: How can we make a CONSTANT full screen on the projector??
    here's the patch:
    PLEASE HELP US!

      Don't stretch the maxwindow across the displays. Make jit.window @float 1 (it needs to be on Windows to get outside the max window) and set it to the location size of the 2nd display. You can do this manually, but jit.displaysis made for this purpose. Check out the helpfile.

      I'm not sure i understand what you mean. We're not psyco's at max :).
      Won't you please make a small patch to demonstrate it, just with a live input from a webcam or something?
      Thx

      sorry I wasn't clear. I don't have a patch handy, but I'm sure it's on the list if you search for "second display". You don't have to use jit.displays. Just make sure you make the window floating. You can just drag it to the second monitor and hit "escape".
