Applies To: Citect SCADA All Version

Summary:  Previously I had multiple monitors displayed in an array, however now I want to use one large display and have multiple Citect windows displayed on it.

Solution:  Remove any MultiMonitor parameters from the Citect.ini (Computer Setup Editor). On startup call a Cicode function to open multiple windows using the WinNewAt Cicode function as follows. This is done in the Computer Setup Wizard, on the Startup Function Setup menu. In this case the dimensions of each page is exactly a quarter of my screen resolution (1920x1080). I then offset where the page is displayed using the X and Y coordinates of the WinNewAt function call.

WinNewAt("test1",0,0,2);
WinNewAt("test2",960,0,2);
WinNewAt("test3",0,540,2);
WinNewAt("test4",960,540,2);
