Lazarus App not sharable on Google Meet
« on: July 17, 2021, 10:23:58 pm »
Google Meet offers the sharing of Application Windows in a conference. This does not work with Lazarus programs. I tried Lazarus 2.0.6 and 2.2.0 RC1 on Win10 64bit with Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

Try: Open a Lazarus app or the IDE itself, go to https://meet.google.com/ , start a new conference and press the square with the up-arrow at the bottom of the screen. Select to share a window and select the lazarus app. Try for comparison with any oter window, i.e. Notepad. Workaround is to share an entire screen, which works without problems.

A problem with Lazarus or with Google? Anyone tried to share an app with MS Teams, Zoom or the like? Does it work?

Thanks
Steve

I Like it that way, no one is going to spy on my app or code.  :D

In most conference apps, you can either share desktop or an application. (don't know google meet, but skype,teams and zoom work that way)

If you go for the application level sharing, you basically sharing one form handle, but the undocked apps has several.

The docked version as leledumbo shows probably only has one such handle

IIRC Application.MainFormOnTaskBar := True is needed on Windows.
Code: [Select]
type
  TLiveSelection = (lsMoney, lsChilds, lsTime);
  TLive = Array[0..1] of TLiveSelection;

This was it! It now works for me!

Thank you!
