Bug Description

--- fixed with 1.0.1: region is cropped to given screen or to the screen containing the largest portion of the region

*** problem
At least on Windows 7 we have the situation, that maximized application windows (e.g by double clicking on the title bar) are macimized in a way, that the window frame is put outside the physical screen.
This leads to a "negative" (x,y) point for the top left corner of the region returned by App().window() and hence to the reported error: Region outside any screen.

*** workaround

reg = intersection(App('Microsoft Word').window(0))

which reduces the window region to the visible part on Screen(0)
 (what is the area, that is accessible for Sikuli)

But you still get the error messages (can be ignored now ;-)


  reg = App('Microsoft Word').window(0)

  #Look for text

Making more tests in the IDE, I have this error when the window is maximized:

  [debug] getWindow: java.awt.Rectangle[x=-4,y=-4,width=1448,height=908]
  [error] Region (1448, 908) outside any screen - subsequent actions might not work as expected
  [error] script [ TestText ] stopped with error in line 6
  [error] FindFailed ( null )

possible solutions:
- generally crop regions to the screen, where the most pixels are located
- only do that for App().window()
- more ?
