  • Teaching your app to respect Windows DPI settings, or to allow a custom text/form size for your application. Mike will show how an application responds to Windows DPI ("Text size") settings, how an application can read those settings, and how an app can take charge of its DPI settings and scale forms and fonts to match. By adding one simple switch, this same functionality can also allow the user to set a custom text/form size for the application which is larger (or smaller) than the Windows setting.
