Tabax 0.2.15 -- fit mazimized windows


download (30K)

There are two changes:
1. "Fit maximized windows" setting added -- thanks AdnyD
2. Bug in table browser removed -- thanks Ivan Kashperuk

One of tabax users asked for the "Fit maximized windows feature". In you enable it tabax will fit window to the client area of Ax main window when detect maximization of some inner window.

I think, everybody do not like the following Ax behaviour: when you maximize window (for example code editor) and then open child window, the first winow change it's size. The new Tabax feature prevents it behaviour - it just normalize all maximized windows and fit them to the maximal size they can get without some parts being hidden. So when new window is displayed, prevoius window do not change it's size.

What do you think about this feature?
