I have just installed MonoGame as a way to prototype code for other projects. Already though I have one really annoying problem that I don’t seem to be able to find a solution for. With a WinForms project, you can set the start position for when the programme runs but I can’t do that with the MonoGame project. As a result, every time I run the project, the control bar of the window is hidden behind the taskbar… so I can’t move the window away from the code.
As an artist/designer/programmer, I have a lot of applications that I need access to, so I hate having the taskbar appear and disappear all the time with autohide. I found one solution where you can cascade the windows to get access to it but if I have to do that every time I run the project, it’s going to get old really, really quickly.
I run a dual-monitor setup so I prefer to move the output to my second screen while it is running, so I can reference the code and output at the same time. Does anyone have any suggestions/tips on how to get round this? I even tried moving VS to my second screen but the monogame window still opened on my primary screen, hidden behind the taskbar.
