1082 - What is the script to make sure the presentation window is centered, no mattter what the screen resolution is?

by - Joe Ganci

I have written an Authorware application. In it, I've set the File Properties to center the presentation window on the screen. On some operating systems, it doesn't seem to work. Is there a way I can do it through a script?

Sure, put the following in a Calc at the top of your file:

MoveWindow(ScreenHeight / 2 - WindowHeight / 2, ScreenWidth / 2 - WindowWidth / 2)

This is using Authorware's internal MoveWindow function along with Authorware's system variables ScreenHeight, WindowHeight, ScreenWidth, and WindowWidth.
