I use a combination of a tool being developed by Jason Hood (http://adoxa.110mb.com/misc/) called "Console Size" (though we are currently playing with a modified version to work across multiple monitors).
One of the issues is getting the window (rather than the screen buffer) to spread across multiple windows.
Cleverly, Jason found UltraMon's SDK and created the following VBS script ...
Const SHOWSTATE_MAXIMIZED_DESKTOP = 4
Set wnd = CreateObject("UltraMon.Window")
If wnd.GetForegroundWindow() = True Then
wnd.ShowState = SHOWSTATE_MAXIMIZED_DESKTOP
This is nearly perfect.
What would be really useful is if the SDK could be extended to include
Currently, when the script is run, it is maximized to the desktop, which places it behind the task tray at the bottom of the screen.
If there was a workspace size, then these 2 processes could operate together.
I only sometimes want to double the width of the console, so using a hotkey to run a batch file for both of these is great.
Alternatively, if there was a way I could get the code that deals with what I am trying to do so it wasn't dependent upon UltraMon, then that would be even better!
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
