 :tellme: No, I have FullScreen running at 0% CPU load in Vista on a quad core.

How it's done? I think they just grow and shrink the controls. The trick is deciding which controls to adjust.

Skrommel: That's a great find! It works wonderfully and it's something that could actually be very practical as a day-to-day program. I would consider giving it space in my startup folder had any of you made the program. I had thought about how to make the other controls from the parent window available once a certain control was made fullscreen, Fanix Fullscreen seems to have solved that very nicely.

I can't reliably report on the CPU usage because my old laptop is usually overly-taxed as it is. It seems though, as though it's fairly nice on resources.

Also, I don't actually normally use Autodesk Inventor myself but I'll hassle one of our engineers soon and post the results.

VideoInPicture: I'm a regular reader at www.lifehacker.com and it was pretty funny seing this post today. Congratulations on all the positive reviews! Also, I've now tested Fanix Fullscreen with Autodesk Inventor and it works like a charm, it has the exact functionality that I was looking for in my original post. It's a great program.

Thanks for the translation! I will include it when I release the update that fixes a potential startup problem with the settings file.

I have been trying to code this same thing off-and-on for a long time, but was unfamiliar with the way to do it. I am so very happy that you have done this and have made it available for free!

I use a Bible program called E-Sword. I also have an Acer Aspire One laptop. This laptop has a screen resolution of 1024x600, which makes for some "interesting" reading scenarios. I wanted to view the Bible in full screen without the additional menus and controls, but E-Sword is coded in visual basic, so it "knows" if one of its controls have been resized inside of itself. Therefore, I was unable to do anything with it. Your "fix" of taking the control out of the program altogether is a real breakthrough for this program, and makes it possible to work with it without issues.

Once again, Thank you very much for this program and what it does for me. This is invaluable.
