Remarks

Setting the DesktopWidth property is optional, but it must be set before calling the Connect method. If a desktop width is not specified, or is set to zero, the desktop width is set to the width of the control. The minimum and maximum values are dependent upon the operating system version of the Remote Desktop client.

Windows 8/Windows Server 2012

200 minimum, 8192 maximum

Windows 7/Windows Server 2008

200 minimum, 2048 maximum

Windows Vista

200 minimum, 1200 maximum

After a connection is established, any changes to the control's width do not change the width of the remote desktop. Instead, the control brings up scroll bars or centers the remote desktop, as appropriate. To change the desktop size of an active connection, use the IMsRdpClient8::Reconnect method.
