Command line arguments for MultiCharts?

Postby jek » 06 Mar 2007

Does MultiCharts have the ability to accept any command line arguments?

It would be *extremely* useful if the following arguments were available:

To position this instance of MultiCharts in a specific location:

multicharts -upperleft xpixel,ypixel -lowerright xpixel,ypixel

Very useful with multiple monitors.

To specify which workspaces for an instance of MultiCharts to load:

multicharts -loadworkspace wsp1.wsp -loadworkspace wsp2.wsp ...


With these two sets of command line arguments, one can create a simple script to set up your desktop displays.

Thanks!

No, it hasn't.

Later we will add the functionality that will allow to save the positions of all the instances and workspaces across multi-monitors.

Please give some consideration to the idea of just allowing some simple command line arguments. It is so easy to implement compared with creating and managing all of the objects required for state mangement.
