Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

I still have problems using multiple displays, as I mentioned I have a laptop (resolution A by B) and an external display (resolution C by D). When I try to maximize the floting window out of the main window, it is either too small or too large, but never fits the actual resolution of a second display.

Yes, this is a known issue. The window is maximizing to a size based on the size of the screen in which the IRT task window resides. If all screens are the same size / resolution, no problems. But if the window in which the IRT task (main) window resides is larger or smaller than that of a floating window, the maximize command will not sure the window to the proper size of the screen it resides, but rather to that of the main IRT window. This is a problem with our underlying development tools and we hope to have a solution in the future. For now, you'll have to manually resize the window to get the maximized effect when you encounter this situation. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Ahh ok, thank you, good to know. I really like Investor/RT so this is just a small nuisance. P.
