c# : control font scaling

8 New Member
Hey all,

I was trying to resize control size to the form size.
I'm changing my form size according to current Screen Size by using
Screen.PrimaryS creen.WorkingAr ea; and then I'm making a resizing to my form.
but the main problem is how to resize controls which are embedded to the form ?
after googeling and trying some kind of things, i got that the main problem of control resizing is control's font scaling. any idea how to scale the font according the current screen resolution?

Thanks
Igal

I hope this is the correct newsgroup for this subject. The other day I came across a site www.safesquid.com that specified font-family:Terminal font-size:9pt in the inline css for command-line displays in the page content. On my Windows 2000 PC, Terminal is a bit-mapped font that comes in various fixed sizes. The rendering differences between Mozilla 1.7.2 (which is my default browser) and MS IE 6 (latest patches) are fully illustrated...

Hello all, I'm building an app that lays out and prints flash cards. Now the card might be any size, but when the user is working on the card, I draw the preview isotropically, as large as possible. The user specifies a font size for the document, but I need to scale this for the preview. The scaling code I have is very close but not right. I can only notice that it's wrong occasionally when I have a piece of text that wraps, and the...

As I understand it, most browser manufacturers have agreed on 16px for their default font size. So, this should be an accurate conversion for percentages: px % 16 = 100 14 = 87.5 13 = 81.25

I have a site up and running (www.solsoft.gr). I tested it with FF2 and IE6 and works ok with some IE hacks. Ok the CSS isn't good cause I started designing it with another look and the customer ended up wanting a 3-column layout. Now I see that IE7 mess things up. First of all there's a left margin which I don't know why it exists. Secondly when I see the page the fonts are way too big. I first had body{font-size:0.62em} but now...

This is how I do it now. 1. Determine the dimensions of the rectangle. 2. Set a my font size to a fixed maximum size. 3. Apply the font my string and measure the string using the graphics object. 4. If string size is less than the size of the rectangle, we are done.

Hi all -- I have two questions. First, I'm adding a control to my form at runtime and the control/form seems to ignore the anchor property of the runtime control. Any idea how I can get a runtime control to anchor properly? Second -- the program I'm writting is supposed to look like a dos application (long story). When the application is "Normal" aka a small window then everything looks great. But when I resize the window to...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
