I've run into a possible compatibility issue with an iPad pro running in Sidecar mode with a brand new Macbook Pro. Sidecar is a feature available on both certain models of iPad and Mac products that allow the Mac's display to be extended across to the iPad. In this case, Sidecar seems to be working fine, as windows can be moved between the Mac's main screen and the iPad without issue. Videos etc work fine as well, and I believe the Pen and touch bar controls work fine (remote user, I haven't tested myself).
Horizon Client runs perfectly fine in single display mode on both the iPad and Macbook Pro. Extended screens is where the problems occur. The guest OS we're logging into is Windows 7 SP1. When I look at the displays within the Win7 guest I see that it thinks it's extending the desktop correctly, however the iPad only shows a black screen. We should be using BLAST protocol, but PCoIP is an available option for end users. Is there any information on whether or not this feature is currently supported by Horizon Client?
Like most Apple tech I've tried to work with, finding technical information on how it's implemented hasn't been straight forward. In case it helps with answering this question: Sidecar seems to require Apple's Metal Graphics API to work properly. This is something that at least VMWare Fusion uses just fine and I would suspect that since Horizon Client works in single display mode on the iPad there's no incompatibility here. My other thought was that this may be down to how Mac handles drawing the remote display, and it doesn't allow any extended apps in general. Some quick Google-fu didn't bring anything up. I checked through the Mac Horizon View client release notes for a mention of Sidecar to no avail. Might not be a known bug or I could be doing something wrong.
Any help is appreciated with this. Thanks,
