C# Question

Programmatically Maximize Window On Half Of Screen

I want to maximize a random window on the left side of my screen. Can I use Windows Aero functions from my code ? This window can be maximized like that with the mouse. I just want to do that programmatically.

I use

C#
and I can get the
IntPtr
of the window.

If possible without faking mouse or keyboard input.

Answer

It's not exactly the same but fakes it well:

ShowWindow(handle, SW_MAXIMIZE);
// for a split second you might see a maximized window here
MoveWindow(handle, 0, 0, Screen.PrimaryScreen.WorkingArea.Width / 2, Screen.PrimaryScreen.WorkingArea.Height, true);
