I have a two display system. VS2005 and my app are being developed on display #2. When I start the app by selecting "Start Debugging" it launches on display #2. However, one of the forms I use for a dialog box opens on monitor #1. Is there a way to specify how an application function on a multiple display system?

Hi tmostad,
use the property  Form.StartPosition and set it to CenterParent.

Here is a snippet to play with. Put it into any form and click the screen. It will give you the start position of the screen your form is on, or more exactly, the start position of the screen you made the click on, if your form overlaps screens.

    Private Sub Form1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Click
        Dim r As Rectangle = Screen.GetBounds(Control.MousePosition)
        MessageBox.Show("This screen is at X= " & r.X & " Y = " & r.Y & "  Width = " & r.Width & "  Height = " & r.Height)

        Dim screens() As Screen = Screen.AllScreens
        MessageBox.Show("This computer has " & (screens.GetUpperBound(0) + 1).ToString & " Screens")
    End Sub
