Screen Position (RESOLVED)

Post by ChrisM » Fri Feb 17, 2017 8:54 am

Hi,

Im building a little Windows desktop app, but looking to place it at the bottom right of the screen above the taskbar, I can get it to open on my screen that way but need to it work across resolutions, does anyone know how to do this, or have a code snip that does this?
