Change the DataEase window size and placement on startup





Change the DataEase window size and placement on startup

From version you can control the startup position bu using the command line option /wx,y,h,w when starting DataEase from at batch file or a custom application link.


Mind that you use no spaces between the numeric arguments and the comma.


What to do is create your own shortcut or batch file and add /w20,20,900,600 to start at windows position 20, 20 with with 900 and height 600.


Full command line example:

“c:\program files\dataease\dataease7.2\dataease.exe” /w20,20,900,600 “C:\AppPath” “Appname”


Windows 7 app link

You can’t see the full DateEase path in the start, but it is there. The best way of creating the new link is to make a copy of the standard DataEase link and then update it. This example opens an applicatin at c:\apppath that is called Appname and set the initial windows position to x=40 y=30 width=1024 and height=768


If you want DataEase to start up Maximized, simply select Maximized instead of Normal behind Run in the box below.
