Thread: maximize bug or not?

  1. maximize bug or not?

    If I set someone's font size through a login script, the screen will not be
    fully maximized when its launched.

    Its missing the bottom 1/5th of the window, and it IS considered maximized,
    so the maximize command doesn't work. For certain users, the font size must
    be different.

    The way I get around this is to: set font, restore, than maximize.
    When the user logs on the screen jumps around a bit. Doesn't seem proper.

    Its a bug and a combination of operations that most likely wasn't
    tested. You have not provided the set of commands you are using
    so I'm not even sure how to attempt to reproduce it. However, you
    should be aware that it is not possible to issue a SET TERM FONT command
    and not specify a height. The default height is 12 when it is not
    specified.

    If you need to control the font on a per user basis I suggest you do
    it by starting K95G with different command line options specifying the
    desired facename and height.

    this is what I have for coding

    set gui font courier_new 16 (10-18 depending on the user. which ever permits
    proper viewing)
    set gui window resize-mode scale-font
    set gui window run-mode restore
    set gui window run-mode maximize

    and ya I know about the font type & height needing to be declared at once.
    This set of lines work but its awkward when loading the client jumps around
    as it as it goes through re-sizing. Not a big deal really.

    The origin of the problem is that we have a multitude of Monitor sizes. The
    Fields that we type in, which are indicated by long underscores/underlines,
    aren't viewable for some users unless they resize it.

    If the goal here is to always start K95G with "Courier New" as the font
    and you want the window maximized?
    If so,

    k95g.exe
