MAXWINDOWSIZE

MAXWINDOWSIZE

Description


    Returns the resolution of the largest unobstructed graphics window that can be
    created on this particular graphics device. Works properly for Windows and UNIX
    computers, excluding Macintosh computers. There is no known way to find the resolution
    of the largest unobstructed graphics window on a Macintosh computer, so a fudge factor
    of 22 pixels is used to account for the Macintosh "dock".
