Re: Pivot monitor support on driver level?

Thanks, guys. Now, here's more stuff. When a screen is closed, caused by a resolution change (which is in fact the swap of w and h), it would certainly trigger a screennotify msg to the affected applications, isn't it? Just like a re-open of the Workbench screen would push. So the app's windows shou...

Re: HW-Sensors interface?

Well, i expect some kind of abstraction layer, installed with the OS, like x1000.resource and so on. The interface used by the docky would not know by itself which machine it is running on; instead it would ask for the machines name, and the number of sensors and their specifics and give the user a ...

Re: HW-Sensors interface?

Thanks for your answer. Of course i have an A1222, it sits right next to my Amiga laptop (it has real unicorn-skin). :roll: I just couldn't find anything about sensors in the developer wiki, not even a CPUinfo or anything like that. So a temperature docky that suits to all machines seems quite easil...

HW-Sensors interface?

Hello, is there a general way to read temperature sensors inside the machines CPU(Core)? Are on the AmigaOne motherboards other buses present, which could act as interfaces to sensors, I2C for instance? Is there an API available to address those? Is it possible to list all sensors (cpu temperature, ...

AOS 4FE digital download: PDF Cover?

Hi folks, i cannot find the pdf of the DVD cover inside the downloadable archive of OS4FE, as promised (a few years ago). Customers of the digital download version of AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition for Classic get an archive containing ISO9660 image of the installation media, ADF image of the bootfloppy ...

Re: Pivot monitor support on driver level?

Yeah, i know.

But while implementing new features to the drivers, maybe it is recommended to add those concerns or future features onto the remarks&considerations list.;)

Re: Pivot monitor support on driver level?

I don't really know what to look for, but
googling
'dvi display orientation detection' brings up alot of stuff. Maybe this helps?

I cannot provide any h/w informations about monitors and their communication, sorry.

Re: Pivot monitor support on driver level?

When the Monitor type/name is known to the system (e.g. the display driver), an 'instant' swap of displaywidth and -height could be an indication of a rotated monitor. This rotation has to be checked, of course. Maybe the monitor itself reports this via communication channels on the display bus? htt...

Pivot monitor support on driver level?

I've asked this in another forum already but this might be the right spot to suggest a feature i would like to see in AOS4: The support of pivot monitors. That is when you turn a monitor to 90° or 270° and the screenmode handling software should recognize this, maybe after a reboot but optimaly of c...
