WPF Full screen accross multiple monitors

I’ve been working on a cool instillation project for Microsoft and one of the things I need to do is have my application go full screen across multiple monitors. By default, if you maximize your application window inside Windows it fills the Primary Screen or Active screen but it doesn’t go across all monitors. You have to manually drag the application window across to have it show up on more than one monitor. What if you wanted to make a screen saver for multiple monitors? Doing some internet searching I pieced together this little solution. Here is a code snippet that maximizes your WPF app window across all monitors in multi-mon setups. It also adds a listener for the ESC key to close the window down. Hope this helps people find this solution faster in the future.

Then in your XAML make sure you don’t have any values set so the code behind can do it’s thing.
