Description

Procedure GetScreen returns the top-left and bottom-right corners of the display screen. These values will change as different sized screens are used. This procedure can be utilized to aid in development of dialog boxes, or as a check of screen size for sizing or displaying custom dialogs.
PROCEDURE GetScreen(
VAR x1  :INTEGER;
VAR y1  :INTEGER;
VAR x2  :INTEGER;
VAR y2  :INTEGER);
def vs.GetScreen():
    return (x1, y1, x2, y2)

Parameters

x1 INTEGER Returns X coordinate of top left of screen.
y1 INTEGER Returns Y coordinate of top left of screen.
x2 INTEGER Returns X coordinate of bottom right of screen.
y2 INTEGER Returns Y coordinate of bottom right of screen.

Remarks

(Orso, 2014.08.19): The values returned are pixels. For example my iMac returns "0, 0, 2560, 1440".


This seems to crash VW on Win98.

Works OK on 1000 8367 on XP.
