It doesn't sound like he was asking it to change while it was being displayed.
It sounded like he clicked on the file in explorer, and FPV didn't use the color profile for the current monitor. Presumably, FPV uses the color profile for the monitor it is displaying the picture on.
If I display a picture or video on my samsung 51" LED-LCD it would have 1 profile (a bit better suited for video than art/photography or program development) @1920x1080. but displayed on my desktop -- it has a 30% wider color gamut (NTSC/Adobe level) @2560x1600. On Windows 7, it knows which profile goes with which monitor -- so are you saying that FPV won't display images correctly if I use it once on my right monitor and then in a different copy -- display the same image in the left window?
I don't see how that's "dynamic" -- I wouldn't expect it to change an already displayed object (though some programs do, dynamically change the profile based on what monitor they are displaying on, that is the exception more than the rule). But Launching the program and having it open the pictures on 1 monitor should use it's profile vs. if I open the program, and drag it over to the other monitor (because the program opens on my default monitor), -- and now display a picture -- it sounds like it is all but guaranteed to get it wrong?
I mean it's unlikely that if you have two monitors, that you can control which monitor the program comes up on (likely the last monitor used). So if you have to move it to the other monitor, I would hope it would load the correct profile for that monitor.
That HAS to be a dynamic feature, since not doing so would disallow dragging windows -- I'm wouldn't see it as a requirement to change any currently displayed image as you drag it from one monitor to the next, but certainly, if I open the next image on the new monitor, i'd want it to use the correct profile. How else do you change monitors?
