Make application window resizable

Post by Sonic3R »

Hi,

Can make window resizable in order to have access to Demux button as in screen:

Due to remote machine screen resolution, I cannot access to Demux buttons below. Can you make window resizable, or add key shortcuts or menu bar items ?

Thank you

Can you please tell me the screen resolution and windows scaling % that you are facing?

One possibility is to get rid of the eagles banner but I have to check that it will expose enough at the bottom to make you happy.

Or we could do something like this:

Should be easy as DGDemuxGUI is implemented as a dialog.

OK, thank you. I'll make it resizable with scroll bars appearing when you undersize it.

Please try this:

It's not perfect yet, but it should let you get to the buttons. Please advise your results.

After load disc in application and select stream in right side, the buttons section disappeared and cannot click on any of them

In below picture, will see the inexistent buttons and the scroll bar is at very bottom.

Hmm, I can't duplicate that. But my monitor is 3840x2160. I'll have to drag out a 1920x1080 monitor to try to duplicate it.

Just to be clear, the buttons are present initially but then disappear? What exact operation makes them disappear?

Please re-download and test again, as you may have downloaded a version that was up there shortly before I changed it.

Finally, after opening the app, resize and move it so it is away from the taskbar, centered in the desktop area. Does it still fail like that?

Simply when start app and make it bigger by maximizing... then the button goes behind taskbar I guess

Simple idea would be button/items in menubar. if not worth then I will use the cli command but well, I preferred UI.
No everyone has such resolution, many of things I do from small screen laptop with connection to server with RDP

Please answer our explicit questions.

Don't maximize it. Just open it and resize it down and position in middle of screen. Away from the taskbar, that is the point. Can you then scroll to the buttons?

And what are you even talking about with "maximize"? The app does not have maximize capability.

Any chance of a reply, Sonic3R? I invested significant time and energy into this, and it's holding up a release.

OK, never mind resizing. Try this:

Since we are not going to make it resizable and it now fits within your screen, I mark this resolved.
