Why are WinCC pictures shown incorrectly or with margins in Runtime when using TFT and flat screens?

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

Description:  
Current TFT monitors are mostly set permanently to a resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels.

If you want to have WinCC Runtime pictures at full screen size and with full resolution, you must select the following in WinCC: "Computer properties > Graphics Runtime > Window Attributes", and the options "Full Screen" and "Adapt Picture".

Note:
When changing from an analog monitor to a TFT display (Thin Film Transistor) or vice versa, the new display is addressed only after
rebooting the PC. If you change during running operation, the new monitor appears dark.
