Moving fullscreen projects between multiple monitors

Here is a screen that will show the display configuration and allow you to move the project to a display of your choice. Click on the desired window and it'll prompt you to move the project there.

very cool ! how does it work? how to we import the vwin? I have a similar need for this functionality.

Amazing !!! :thumb_left:

Thanks Kyle; nice work!

Tailfire: The .vwin file is an Ignition Vision client popup window with some slick scripting in it. You import the .vwin by right clicking the Windows folder in the Designer’s project browser and selecting import:

After import, you’ll see a new “Move To Screen” window in your project tree. To use it:
1 - Add a button to one of your windows that opens the “Move To Screen” window.
2 - Pressing that button will then bring up the screen showing your monitors as shown in Kyle’s screenshot above.
3 - Touching/clicking the box corresponding to the screen your client is NOT currently on will move the client to that screen. (Touch/clicking the screen your client IS currently on closes the Move To Screen popup.)
