main windown and popup windown sizes

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I've just tried a very simple button setup on a field...get related record from table A, show record using layout X, check the "Show in new window" and specify a small window size. When I click on the field, a new window pops up as the size I wanted. The problem is that the main window also shrinks its size to the same size as the popup window. This happens to my test database, which is a copy of the real database. I tried the same button setup on the live database, the main window shrinks too. However it shinks only a quater of an inch. I also tried a scrip with New Window, that the effect is the same. I normally have the database window in full size.

This is the first time I used popup window. I thought a popup window should be independent to the main window in terms of the size and what to display. What could be the problem of my popup window? How can I make sure that the main window doesn't get affected. Appreciate for any help!

This is standard behavior on Windows. The only way to resolve it is to set your main window at a specific size (not maximized). Then, when opening a new window, your prior window will remain its size. Hmmm, didn't vs. 10 fix this for Windows? I think it has but I'm not sure if it was just a wonderful dream. :wink2:

Thank you LaRetta for the info. It looks like I need to warn my users about the window size problem. I plan to go for version 10 and hope the dream would come true.
