Y would like a paramter à startup who's catching the focus of RDM with the filter filled with a parameter that I send. Like this :

RemoteDesktopManager.exe /getfocus /filter:Thomas

I would never thought of that but I can see the benefit. I have entered a feature request for that.

Ok, I will explain. I have a soft phone on my computer. When I receive a call, this software can open the outlook contact automaticaly. I want to add a button link to a macro that will get focus on RDM with the FullName as parameter.
By this way when I receive a call I just have to click to the button to have access to all the computer that the user use.

Very nice. It's working like i wanted it !!!

For people how would like to script it in Microsoft outlook :

Here is a small code : Take care it will work only on the contact window.

---->------------------------------------------------------------------
Sub Open_rdm()

Dim senderaddress As String
Dim ProcessID As Long

Set objItem = GetCurrentItem()
senderaddress = objItem.FullName
Commandline = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Devolutions\Remote Desktop Manager\RemoteDesktopManager.exe /filter:" & Chr(34) & senderaddress & Chr(34)
'MsgBox (Commandline)
ProcessID = Shell(Commandline)

End Sub

Is it possible to add a functionnality ?

Is there a possibility to be focused on the dashboard ?

It will be great !

Just for curiosity, why focus the dashboard? Is it because you have the group selected and you want to select the session from the group?

It's because I always have three or four open remote desktop, and I have only one line per couple User-Computer.

When a user call me, I do not often use the default action (Remote desktop). The most of the time I use the vnc on the DashBoard, or a link to the Desktop to add an icon (also on the dashboard).

There is perhaps an other solution ?

Could you send me a print screen so I can see the setup?

Thank you but with the dashboard focuses, how do you intend to select VNC? Isn't it faster to use the mouse directly?

Yes, I have to use the mouse, but when I get the focus on RDM, if I was on another remote screen (about 100% of the time), I need first to select the dashboard window. Most often, it is only one click behalve at the end of the day, when I have a plenty of open screen.

Look at the print screen attached.

It may be useful to add an option, that every time you are accessing the filter zone, that the window dashboard came visible. Thus not only with the option /filter:.

Hi,
I understand now. It's not really to focus the dashboard but to select the dashboard. Anyway thank you for the explanation. The command line could be:

/TabPage: Dashboard
