WINDOW doesn't work under TCMD v11 x64 b40 ?

#1
Folks,

I'm trying to reposition my TCMD v11 x64 Build 40 window on a 1920x1280 screen to the bottom right hand corner.

According to the docs, this is the syntax for the WINDOW call:

Usage : WINDOW [MIN | MAX | RESTORE | HIDE | TOPMOST | NOTOPMOST | TOP | BOTTOM | TRAY | /POS=left,top,width,hei
ght | /SIZE=rows,columns | /TRANS=n | "title"]

and I'm calling it like this:

window /POS=1070,430,850,725

Hmmm.... what am I doing wrong? Or is there a bug in the WINDOW function? It seems to me I'm exactly following this parameter syntax:

/POS=left,top,width,height

but it seems, TakeCommand disagrees :-(

Any ideas?

WINDOW /POS works on a single console window, irrelevant in TCMD because the
console window is not visible. ACTIVATE will move the main TCMD window (and all
else in TCMD will move with it).

No. You cannot use WINDOW /POS in a TCC tab window.

You must use ACTIVATE /POS if you want to affect the Take Command window.
And when you do, you'll probably break most console apps (other than TCC),
which aren't expecting the console window to randomly change sizes after
startup.
