Window Resize

I would really like to be able to shrink this window further. The way I use RDM, I have no need for the rest of the UI elements and definitely do not like how large the window has to be.

Hi,
I'm not sure of the possible side effects. I will add an option in the application to specify the minimal size and you will be able to edit it directly in the xml. What do you think?

That would be fine with me. Thanks.

This will be in the version 8.0.6.0

You are awesome sir. Thank you.

Is this version still in TBA?

I see the options in RemoteDesktopManager.cfg, but they are both set to "0". Changing the value doesn't appear to have any effect.

Clock6 yrs

0 is not a valid value, set it to 50 for example

I have tried 50 and 200. Neither allow me to size the window smaller than default. To clarify my previous comment, the 0s were there by default.

Hi,
You're right. I've found a bug that might be the source of your problem. I will post the v8.0.8 later today, would you mind to retry?

The resize is working in 8.0.8, it doesn't appear to be respecting adjustments to MainFormMinimalWidth. I have changed the default value of 50 to 100 and 200, each time the window was able to resize down to what I am assuming is 50. I only mention this because of the name of the attribute being MinimalWidth.

Also, it doesn't seem to retain the window sizing upon restart. This may be a result of or related to this bug here: http://forum.devolutions.net/topic2348-disabling-dashboard-in-layout.aspx

Hi,
This is no related to the dashboard bug. The dashboard bug is simple; this settings does not exists in the config file.

I'm unable to reproduce it with the form in ribbon mode. The application needs to be closed when you change the value.

I was using Menu mode, but I switched to Ribbon and the issue persists. Yes, I am restarting the application between changes. When I switched from Menu to Ribbon, the MainFormMinimalWidth value was 200. It opened at the default size. I closed, verified the value was still 200 and opened again. It is 1) reopened at the normal width and 2) resized down to "50".

I see the problem, you need to set a value for both. You can't let the height a 0

I will change that by the way for the next update

Setting the vertical value did make it stick.

Clock6 yrs

Great. I have made a fix to use the default width or height when the value is zero. A good screenshot is always helpful to see the small details smile

I have been annoyed by the window size for the longest time. Glad I came searching here today. I never would have figured that out on my own. So much better now!
