Description glywood 2006-01-24 07:31:33 UTC
Whenever I open a presentation, the window that pops up has the title bar drawn
above the top of the screen. The left and right window borders are also drawn
outside the screen.

I use fluxbox as my window manager.

This does not happen with the other applications?
Comment 2 glywood 2006-01-25 05:11:12 UTC
Here's what I just did. It makes no sense to me, but maybe it'll help you.

I ran each of ooffice2, oocalc2, oowriter2, ooimpress2, oodraw2, oomath2, and
ooweb2 from the command line, with no arguments. Of these, oocalc2, ooimpress2,
and oodraw2 exhibited the problem. When I saw that the problem existed, I moved
and resized the windows down to a reasonable level, closed them, and restarted
the application, only to find in each case that the problem was still there.

Then, I tried running "ooffice2 mypresentation.ppt". The problem did not show
up; the window was completely on-screen, exactly the same size as it had been
last time I ran ooffice2.

Then I ran "ooimpress2 mypresentation.ppt". It opened in a normal-sized window
this time. Which was strange because I have never seen Impress do that, not even
when started this way in the past. I think the previous command may have had
some side-effect that fixed it.

Now when I run ooimpress2 from the command line, it does not show the problem.
oocalc2 and oodraw2 still do.

According to the comments above, Calc is affected, too.  So this looks like a
general problem.

cd->as: Andreas looks like a problem with our document window position/size code. 
May be this is a problem special to the window manager?
Comment 7 andreas.schluens 2006-04-21 06:56:12 UTC
AS->PL: It's a feature of OOo to open calc/draw/impress in maximized mode. This 
seams to be not fully working with some window managers. The framework module 
calls "SetWindowState()" with a special prepared window state to reach that effect. 
At least a special "SetMaximized()" method on a vcl window would make the same
 ... but such function does not exists currently.

Independend from that: the maxmized mode should not show such effects.
Can you fix that ... or show me another way to fullfill the specification ?
Comment 8 philipp.lohmann 2007-02-26 17:17:48 UTC
pl->as: there is WorkWindow::Maximize for that purpose. After that it's up to
the window manager.
Comment 9 andreas.schluens 2007-08-02 14:23:45 UTC
AS->PL: Framework does not use Maximize on the WorkWindow ... because there is
no special configuration about maximized/minimized. TH established - long time
ago .-) - the method SetWindowState() which is used instead. So we call
SetWindowState(",,,;4;"); to reach the goal showing an application window in
maximized mode. Seams VCL itself does not use WorkWindow::Maximize() in such
case ? .-)
