B&C window missing

Cammer, Michael
Hi,
I'm sitting next to a visiting colleague who can't see the Brightness & Contrast window when running ImageJ on his 64 bit Windows 7 laptop.  It shows up in the Windows 7 toolbars list but isn't anywhere on the screen, even pushed way off to one or the other side.  Other windows, such as Threshold, are fine.  He rebooted the computer and changed the screen resolution, but the B&C window is still missing.  He started with ImageJ 1.46 but downloaded the daily build of 1.47g with Java 1.6.0_20 and the problem persists.
Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?
Thanks!

Re: B&C window missing

I suspect he may have run it last on an external monitor which is no longer present, so the location is off the screen.

This macro might help:

if (isOpen("B&C")) { selectWindow("B&C"); setLocation(0,0); }

In reply to this post by Cammer, Michael
We think the problem is precisely the external monitor issue but these commands do not operate on the B&C window even if there are no other windows open.  If there are other windows open, then the topmost window that isn't B&C is relocated.



  selectWindow("B&C");

  setLocation(0,0);



Regards,

Michael

That's strange. It's working for me, topmost or not, on a Linux system. Sounds like 'selectWindow("B&C")' fails and then 'setLocation(0,0)' is working on the topmost window.

Have you tried a Windows workaround like this?:

Re: B&C window missing

Barry DeZonia
Alternatively can't you just delete IJ_Prefs.txt? The window location is
likely stored in there.

The macro language is really only meant to work with very simple image
processing workflows and cannot be easily made into a full-fledged script
language.

Try this Javascript code instead:

        importClass(Packages.ij.WindowManager);

        WindowManager.getWindow("B&C").setLocation(0, 0);

Ciao,
Johannes

Just for future reference:

Indeed window locations are stored in IJ_Prefs.txt, the IJ preferences file.
In such a situation, you can reset ImageJ by running Edit>Options>Reset..., implemented in 1.46p.
It will delete the IJ preferences file resetting all parameters to their defaults upon restart.
