I am building an application (WPF) that will run on systems that vary in specifications from a single monitor to multiple monitors.  I am trying to think through the navigation and screen placement of the multiple windows that the application will have.  I want to be able to place the windows on an available monitor, but I also want a consistent pattern for the user so that the window shows up where expected. 

So I am looking for any information or research on multi-monitor UX design that dives into navigation, window placement, notifications, etc. by an application.  There are lots of research and articles about small screen navigation, but nothing I have found that talks about Multi-Monitors.

Any links or ideas would be appreciated

Thanks
Paul

Hello Paul,

In our controls from UI for WPF we do not have specific code for multi-monitor design as this seems more of application logic.  I'd suggest that you post the question in StackOverflow or MSDN forums instead.

Thanks, I had assumed that there was nothing in the Telerik suite, but figured I would ask the general population that reads these forums if they had any thoughts on the problem.  I have submitted the question in other forums.
