Secondary Monitor use; dedicated control from Delphi application
Posted on 2004-09-21
I am trying to allow a program to have a normal Windows UI on the Windows desktop, and also be able to write to secondary monitor. This is not about extending the Windows Desktop onto a secondary monitor, but rather letting the Delphi application take full control of the secondary monitor (in addition to a graphical UI running on the primary monitor)
I could use the secondary monitor in 80x50 text mode, or I could treat it as a graphic canvas.
Could anyone provide a code example of how an application would initialize and then write to a secondary monitor?
