Default Dual Screens

I have one project that I want to run on two monitors showing different information/tab etc, is this possible with one machine and one exe, or even one machine and two exe's?

Thanks Louisa

you can use the form type MDI as parent form and all other forms to be childs by setting(mdichild property to=true)

at start up for MDIFORM you can use this code

Private Sub MDIForm_Load()
MDIForm1.WindowState = vbMaximized



end sub

you can then set the hight and the width , an you can use the screen object to get the monitor current (height,width) setting
