Maximize Window

How can I best maximize the FileMaker window, running the solution as large as possible?

Go Big

There is a script built into the calendar to enlarge the main calendar screen as large as your display will allow. To enable this, edit the script "Adjust Window" and turn the switch 1=0 into 1=1. Then run the Adjust Window script or the Upon Opening script to see your changes take effect.

Special considerations for Windows Vista and Windows 7

The native "maximize window" command in Vista and Windows 7 doesn't work very well with FileMaker since FileMaker will arbitrarily resize windows if a new window is generated when one is maximized.

And while DayBack generally runs as a single-window solution, there are a couple of additional windows in use: the advanced filters show in a separate window, and you can elect to show any source's events in a mini window instead of an in-app popover (as we do with our To-Do list source).

So rather than actually click "maximize window", use the scripting change mentioned above to get the window as large as possible without incurring the problems of actually using the Windows maximize command.
