Hi, my MacBook has a second bigger monitor on the right where Indesign is usually open.
In my script:

- if I open a 'dialog' (alert for example), it appears correctly on the rightside monitor over the Indesign document

- if I open a 'progressbar' (see code below), it appears on the MacBook monitor on the leftside not over the Indesign document (then even dialogs start to appear on the wrong monitor)

 

Is there a way to open the progressbar over Indesign on the rightside monitor?
If you're ask yourself 'why?', it's because I need to let a Teamviewer client to launch my scripts AND see the progressbar

---

function creaPannelloProgress(valoreMassimoProgress, larghezzaBarraProgress) {
pannelloProgress = new Window('window','Linkamento dei codici');
with (pannelloProgress) {
pannelloProgress.barraProgress = add('progressbar',[24,24,larghezzaBarraProgress,50],0,valoreMassimoProgress);
}
return pannelloProgress;
}
pannelloProgress = creaPannelloProgress(100,600);
pannelloProgress.show();

Instead of [24,24, . . .] force the palette on to the second screen by using something like [2000, 24, . . .]. Depends on the size of your screen.  To find out your screen sizes, see https://creativepro.com/files/kahrel/indesign/scriptui.html P.

It works.

 
    if ($.screens.length > 1) { //two monitors?
        left_dy_w = $.screens[0].right;
        right_dy_w = $.screens[1].right - $.screens[0].right; //$.screens[1].right is the sum of both monitors width
    } else { //only one monitor
        left_dy_w = 0;
        right_dy_w = $.screens[0].right;
    }
 
var dialogoArray = new Window("dialog"); 
dialogoArray.frameLocation = [(left_dy_w + (right_dy_w / 2) - (430 / 2)), 200]; //430 is my dialog width
