I need to convert between Drawing.Font.Size (float, ?) and WPF FontSize (double, WPF pixels).Finally, I decided to store in the database the fontSize in inch...How can I convert the GDI FontSize to inch and the WPF FontSize to inch?
Can I use something DPI independent? Maybe System.Windows.FontSizeConverter?I need to convert to something, that will allow me to switch multiple time between WPF and GDI without changing the "real value". Each division and following multiplication will accumulate errors...
FontSizeConverter does a ConvertTo, but I don't understand to use it:
I am working on an program and I need it to change the size on the form and the button etc when its ran on a different resolution then it was coded on. Is there anyway to do this easy or do I have to hard code it on two different and change it by like a button etc? I am working with a 1024 X 780 and a 1240 X 1024.
Is there any prebuilt items to roundup a number to set fraction size or do I need to build a routine to do this? If I have to build this any thoughts on the way to go about it? I was thinking I need to strip the decimal places and then compare them to a dataset of numbers a make a choice?
Wondering if there was a way around the seemingly nonsensical editor changing of the maximum size form you can edit/create to some value approaching the screen resolution you are working on. This is a P.I.T.A. as I often edit pages on a laptop with a smaller max resolution than the monitors I typically do layouts for.Any way to by pass this to let me edit larger screen sizes on my laptop?
I designed a form which contains about 50 objects all kinds including tableadapters,buttions,grids, tabs. What is the best way to optimize the loading with less time consuming. I cannot split objects in on different form as all the objects has to appear on screen as a requirement.
But my primary question here is, i designed this form with all these objects on a 15" monitor which fitted 100% on the screen. Now i am using 17" monitor when i open this form on run time, all the objects are appearing as designed but theres a 30% form area which is left blank. How can i make the form objects resize automatically on run time itself to fit on different size of monitor with no area left blank.
I've googled and binged my browser to an inch of it's life, but i'm still no nearer to an answer for this, so I'd be grateful for some advice. Mainly with the syntax, but knowing me the whole concept is wrong!I have a textbox. When user enters a string and presses enter, I want the following to happen.
I'm struggling with 3 and 4 and 7
1. Check the string is not more than 13 characters, if so trim the last characters off to make 13
2. Find if the first character of the string is a digit or a letter
I have scanned a few img's on 600 DPI. When i load them into a Bitmap class They have Vertical and Horizontal Resolution of 96 PPI To my calculation that is very close to 38 Pixels per centimeter. Now the image that I scanned is 4.5 Centimeter (1.77165354 Inch) In Diameter but When I measure It the 4.5 cm img is close to 1080 pixel in Diameter which is 240 Pixels/Centimeter (609.6 Pixels/inch) What is the correct way to get the actual Pixels per inch/centimeter from a bitmap or was it set incorrectly by my scanner ?
I am creating an application for a company and this CD will be distributed to hundreds of people. Many users will have different computer screen size and different screen settings such as their resolution set to 1024 x 728 and their monitor size 17" inches.
I noticed when I loaded the application on a different computer with different settings the application was to big for the screen and did not work. I notice that lot of other programs from microsoft resize their controls and text but never knew how they did it. How can I resize the form and control according to the user's setting.
I want to create small 1,5 x 1 inch image/logo spinning in the upper right corner of my app.I have tried to find a solution reading posts and tutorials on OpenGL, DirectX, GUI+. how to create this using vb.net (using vs2008)?Here is a link to a spinning logo (forget the program, just the logo), like I want to create. I have a .jpg image that I want to use.[URL]
I have a very high screen resolution on my laptop: 1400x1050.My colleague tried it out on his laptop (which had lesser resolution), and the application did not fit on his laptop. The buttons were dragging out of the screen space.So, I want my application to automatically resize/adjust based upon the screen resolution.I don't want to use Maximized screen option and don't want to change user's pc settings.Unfortunatly I am not using Table Layout panel.
I just want to get opinions from other developers.What size do you tend to prefer for your applications?I have decided to stick to 1024Ã—768 but am I alienating the people who still have 800Ã—600.According to Wikipedia only 1% of internet users still use 800Ã—600 screen resolution.What size do you tend to prefer for your applications?
We did development of a VB application on a machine with a high resolution screen. Also the machine where the real application runs has a high resolution screen. After a while we wanted to do minnor changes on the application and we wanted to use a low resolution laptop for that. When we opened the application for editing we saw that all forms changed their sized automatically AND unwanted.How can we build and change applications in one form size that does not change depending on the resolution of the machine on which edits are made?
I developed a form application on my computer, but when it was used in another computer with different screen size, i was told the form didn't fit. Do I have to adjust the form size or any other ways to let the form compatible on different screen size? (could be different screen size or wide screen)
I'm setting form sizes according to user screen resolution and I think I need design no smaller than 1024 x 768 these days. Using the following code I set my first form and use Anchor settings to resize and maintain controls. Does resize affect StartupPosition in other forms and what do you think is the best StartupPosition to Show the next (smaller) forms? I have a feeling I should have created child forms but simply added forms to the project as I needed them. For example, the first code example does not take account of the WIN7 Task Bar.
HTML Dim x As Integer = My.Computer.Screen.Bounds.Width, y = My.Computer.Screen.Bounds.Height Me.Size = New Size(x, y)
A smaller form loads with the same code slightly varied, but the reduction is not taking account of the screen resolution. Is there a way of reducing by percentage?
HTML Dim x As Integer = My.Computer.Screen.Bounds.Width, y = My.Computer.Screen.Bounds.Height X = X -100 y = y - 100 Me.Size = New Size(x, y)
I made vb.net program for 1440x900 resolution, if i run my program on 800x600 or 1024x768, my program's resolution is bigger then windows, so i have problem with resolution. Now i want to change my program's size and i am interested in, wich resolution is correct to make program, 800x600 such as minimum?
I've got a problem with vb 2010: If I make a new form and add every button and make a background for the application and built my app, I can't open normal on a other pc. It change the ordening of my buttons and the other pictur boxes I've add. My screen resolution is 1920x1080. The other pc has a screen resolution off 1024 X 768. What I wanna ask is: whitch code must I add on "form1"?
I know I can find the screen resolution of the Primary screen easily, but I want to find the resolution of the screen that my form is currently sitting in (this is not the same on my setup I have three screens with two different resolutions)the form could span more than one screen so I would be happy with finding the screen that contains the most area of the form/the top left corner.Is there a simple way to do this? I can enumerate the screens, but then working out where my form is sitting within this is tricky:[code]
I am trying to write program in vb 2010 that is independent of screen resolution. I am designing the program in 1920*1080 and when I change the resolution to e.g. 800*600 everything blows up and the program won't fit the screen. I have tried three different approaches:
loop through all controls and scale their position and dimensions Friend Sub ResizeControl(ByRef ctl As Control) '---------------------------- GET SCALES ------------------------- Dim DesignScreenWidth As Integer = 1920 Dim DesignScreenHeight As Integer = 1080 [Code] .....
None of these methods has worked for me. One thing I figured out was that my main form is larger than 800*600 pixels so when I run the designer in 800*600 resolution VS cut down the with to 812px so my calculations of with and thus scaling ratio becomes wrong. This error goes applies for all three methods.
I am new to this forum, and have search both here and on the interwebz.I don't have my code here right now, but thought I could ask anyways:I have an application that is going to run in fullscreen and display a clock in a defined position on the screen when it is in fullscreen mode. How can I define that position so that the clock appears at that point regardless of resolution on the screen?
I have designed a complaints form for my work (free of charge just for my cv). I designed the form for the resolution 1280 x 1024. My problem is when a user with a smaller resolution say 800 x 600 uses it. The form will be out of sync with the screen as shown below (tested on my on computer). So I am wondering is there a way to test the screen size of the users computer then readjust the size of my controls according to the size of the screen. By the way all of my controls are anchored so that they stay in the same place.
