#109 closed defect (fixed)

Please disallow Guest Resolution to be highter than Host can go or provide scrolling.

Reported by: Technologov Owned by:
Component: GUI Version: VirtualBox 1.3.6
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: other Host type: other


Currently, a user *can* switch his guest Windows VM into a very high resolution, unsupported by Host monitor. The guest becomes totally un-navigatable.

I fill this as bug, because either limit the resolution guestVM can go into, *or* provide scrolling so the VM will function much like virtual resolution in X on Linux.

Software: openSUSE 10.2 Linux, VirtualBox 1.3.6 Full.

Well, I have thought of a solution, that combines both.

  1. Please provide scrollers for virtual resolution.
  1. Additionally, please make guest-monitor configurable in GUI.

So guest OSes will not to go beyond X*Y (say, 1600x1200 or 640x480) depending, on user's needs.

Actually we did this in 1.6.0. The GUI is reporting the resolution of the desktop area (which is often a bit smaller than the host screen resolution). Many people complain that they are not able to set a guest resolution equal to the host resolution.
