R – How to force a .net application to display on a particular monitor in a dual monitor setup


I would like to run multiple copies of my application and force the first to open on one monitor and the second instance on a second monitor

Best Solution

Screen monitor1 = System.Windows.Forms.Screen.AllScreens[0];
Screen monitor2 = System.Windows.Forms.Screen.AllScreens[1];

will give you the size and position information for both monitors.

Form f = new Form();
f.Location = monitor2.Location;
f.Size = monitor2.Size;
f.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.Manual;
f.WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized;

should pop a form up in your second monitor.
