RibbonWindow on multi-monitor systems

I'm having an issue with the RibbonWindow on multi-monitor systems that have different resolutions and the smallest monitor is set as the primary device. The windows display correctly on the smaller monitors, but the size of the maximized window on the largest monitor is wrong. It is displaying too large so that the minimize/maximize/close buttons are outside of the visible area for the window.

For example, on a system with 1024x768 (primary) and 1280x1024 monitors, the windows will display correctly on the smaller monitor but the window appears to extend beyond the bounds when maximized on the larger monitor. The ActualWidth/ActualHeight of the window when maximized on the larger monitor is 1536x1036.

If the larger monitor is set as the primary, the windows behave as expected. I've verified that the RibbonWindow sample in the sample browser duplicates this issue.

Is there some setting or something that I need to do to make the windows behave correctly on the larger monitor?

Thanks!

Hi Jason,

Does this happen when you run the Document Editor demo or the RibbonWindow QuickStart from our sample application? If not, then could you please email a sample project that reproduces the issue to our support address?

Thanks

It happens with all of the Ribbon quick starts in the Sample Brower that have a "Run External Samples" button (RibbonWindow, "Hiding the Application Button", "Gallery in a Ribbon", etc).

What Operating System are you running? Also, what version of .Net are you using?

Hi Jason,

We were able to reproduce the issue on XP (we were originally testing on Vista). We are narrowing down the issue and a fix, but but will be off for the holiday. So we'll look into this next week.

Hi Jason,

This should be corrected in the next maintenance release.
