4.40 Not Maintaining Window Sizing on Restart

4.40 Not Maintaining Window Sizing on Restart

Perhaps stuff like:

Code: Select all

MainWindowState=2
MainL=2550
MainT=75
MainW=12150
MainH=11520
(Likewise, DupWindowState.)

If, now, you're using something like this, they're showing as -1:

Code: Select all

frmMain_Init=1-2
frmMain_Flags=0
frmMain_MinX=-1
frmMain_MinY=-1
frmMain_MaxX=-1
frmMain_MaxY=-1

I cant reproduce this problem here:

When i start AllDup, change the window size & position, close AllDup and start AllDup again the changed window size & position will be restored...

change the window size & position
Ah, seems "change" is the operative word.
If you resize the window by dragging the window, its new sizing is maintained.

But if you simply maximize the window, wanting it fullscreen, that is not maintained.

Similarly, & based on how "work" when using AllDup...


Normally (up through 432), I open AllDup, it opens, fullscreen.
I perform a search, Search Results opens fullscreen.
I open File Manager to delete files, its' window opens "within" (if you will) AllDup, AllDup Results window giving context.

I OK the deletions.
I'm return to Results window.
I hit the 'X' close button (on the Results window itself).
Results window has closed.
I (do not move my mouse, I simply) click the mouse button again, hitting the 'X' close button (on the AllDup window itself).



Currently, through 4.4.3, in the same scenario...

I open AllDup, it opens, almost, fullscreen.
(Almost, because, currently, it only maintains its' resized window sizing, not a [Maximized, fullscreen] sizing.)
I perform a search, Search Results opens fullscreen.
I open File Manager to delete files, its' window opens irrespective of AllDup.
(There is no contextual relationship to AllDup Results. File Manager displays with an unwanted contextual window as its' background.)

I OK the deletions.
I'm return to Results window (which is fullscreen).
I hit the 'X' close button (on the Results window itself).
Results window has closed.
I (do not move my mouse, I simply) click the mouse button again, hitting the 'X' close button - potentially - of some other application; my file manager, my browser window,... - something, but almost assuredly not the AllDup window itself.



I often use AllDup in just the manner described above.
Often starting AllDup directly from command-line, having it search a particular tree, performing my wanted search, deleting the files I want to delete, & 'X' 'X', & I'm out of the program, all quite quickly, cleanly, straight forward.

DUP.BAT:

Code: Select all

SET      XDIRNAME="%CD%"

START "" C:\DEV\DUPLICATE\AllDup4\alldup_commandline\AllDupPortable.exe %XDIRNAME%
EXIT
Yes, you do have the ability to directly exit AllDup from the Results window, but that is not my usual method of operation.


(This post goes hand in hand with, 4.40 File Manager Minimizes Results Window.)


(This is also rather like, Bug 1554490 Firefox is not focused on first open of a NEW Profile.)
