Debug With Apps Displayed on Secondary Monitor

, 29 Nov 2006
Here's some code that will automatically start your app on a secondary monitor if it's compiled with debug info.

// or project specific include files that are used frequently,
// but are changed infrequently

#pragma once

#define VC_EXTRALEAN		// Exclude rarely-used stuff from Windows headers

// Refer to MSDN for the latest info on corresponding values for different platforms.
#ifndef WINVER				// Allow use of features specific to Windows XP or later.
#define WINVER 0x0501		// Change this to the appropriate value to target other versions of Windows.
#endif

#ifndef _WIN32_WINNT		// Allow use of features specific to Windows XP or later.

// turns off MFC's hiding of some common and often safely ignored warning messages

About the Author

John Simmons / outlaw programmer
Software Developer (Senior)

I've been paid as a programmer since 1982 with experience in Pascal, and C++ (both self-taught), and began writing Windows programs in 1991 using Visual C++ and MFC. In the 2nd half of 2007, I started writing C# Windows Forms and ASP.Net applications, and have since done WPF, Silverlight, WCF, web services, and Windows services.
 
My weakest point is that my moments of clarity are too brief to hold a meaningful conversation that requires more than 30 seconds to complete. Thankfully, grunts of agreement are all that is required to conduct most discussions without committing to any particular belief system.
