Can I use DataWindow(DataWindowMode.Custom) at fullscreen size?

Mar 11, 2011 at 5:36 AM

Hi there,

I am using Catel and I'd like to create a full screen Windows application. I tried to use DataWindow with DataWindowMode.Custom. But it seem that DataWindow can not display at full screen size but it has an offset about 50 at right and bottom size. Is there any way I can use DataWindow at full screen size? Or I have to use the normal Window of .NET framework?

Hi Huynh,

Thank you for reporting this issue. I have implemented a fix, here is the changelog:

(-) Removed default offset in DataWindow so it can be displayed in maximized 
    state as well. If you want to want to use the old offset, simply call
    DataWindow.EnableWindowOffset() or set the MaxWidth and MaxHeight properties

You can download the latest source and use this change, or you can wait for the official 1.3 release (not scheduled yet).

If you have any other feature requests or issues, just let us know!

Thank you very much indeed for your swift respond.  I appreciated it very much.  I apologize for being late in replying you. The disaster in Japan has made me so busy so far.
