Hi Sergey, Main reason to change the test to run on the main screen is that the test runs thro's different graphics configurations whereas keeping the AWT frame in the same main screen. This leads to wrong calculations. Also for the intent of the test it is not required to run on all the graphics configurations.

The problem is that getBounds() of the GraphicsConfiguration class returns the scaled size which is used as an initial input to set the maximized bounds by calling setMaximizedBounds(). As you said, frame.getBounds() returns the user space size. Hence we would need to transform it.

Thanks and regards,

Hi, Shashi.

Before this fix this test was executed on all screens on the system.
Why have you changed it to test only main screen?

If I understand the code correctly the test checks the size which is passed to frame.setMaximizedBounds() and the size which is returned by frame.getBounds(). In both cases the size should be in the users space(not in pixels). Why additional transform(added in the fix) is necessary?

Best regards, Sergey.
