Incorrect display on multiple monitors


Great project! Unfortunately, it behaves a bit strangely when you have multiple monitors with different resolutions. The primary monitor is configured correctly, but then it appears to apply the same image to the second monitor. I've attached a screenshot, the primary monitor is running 1280x1024 and the secondary is running 1280x800. I have put images in the wallpaper folders for both resolutions, and scribbled over them so I can identify which is being used. It's a Windows XP SP3 machine with .NET 3.5 SP1 and .NET 4 installed.
As I see it I'd be happy(er) with either...
  • A resolution where a different image is applied to each display depending on resolution
  • A workaround where the image is not applied to secondary monitors, but the background colour is used instead or something

Sorry about the delay. Right now I haven't written any code to support multi monitors simply because I've not needed that. I do have some ideas on how I'd like to proceed but I don't really have that much time right now.

No problem. We've had to go down the BGInfo route (yuk!) for now but I shall certainly keep an eye on your project.
