GroupBoxes too big

Joe
We have a customer where one of there computers is displaying a screen sort
of oversized. The screen has 3 groupboxes in it. There is one that gets
stretched to the right and bottom off the screen and another one that gets
stretched to the bottom off the screen. The text also seems larger.

We checked their Font size and DPI but they're both normal.

The problem with the groupbox that goes off the right and bottom has a list
box in it so the scroll bar doesn't show and the user can't scroll down by
the keyboard either for some reason.

Is there another setting that might cause this to happen. I don't know if
it's just the larger text causing it or if the problem is the groupboxes be
stretched.

I hope this makes sense.

Thanks,
Joe

Sounds like the form is going off the bottom of the screen and the
group box is docked or anchored. However, without seeing any code it's
hard to check.

Could you post a short but complete program that demonstrates the
problem? See http://pobox.com/~skeet/csharp/complete.html for what I
mean by that.

Hi Joe,

Based on my understanding, you run a WinForm application on a computer. The
GroupBoxes on the form are stretched to the right and bottom off the screen
and the text on the form seems larger. If I'm off base, please feel free to
let me know.

If you run the application on another machine which has the same physical
dimension as the problematic computer, does the problem still exist?

What's the screen resolution on the problematic computer? You may have a
try changing the screen resolution higher to see if the problem disappear.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Linda Liu
