Captions Clipped when Windows Font DPI increased

Posted 17 November 2012 - 06:44 PM

Hi Group,

Does anyone have a link to info about keeping label/buttons captions from being clipped or forced to another line when I increase the Font DPI in Windows? I searched the archine and only came up with stuff related to positioning objects when the form is resized.

Thanks in advance,
Chuck

Are you sure this is a VB6 question?

Please read: This is not the VB.NET forum
Please read: Is learning VB6 now a complete waste of time? (Yes)


What do you want the behavior to be?
You increase the font size, meaning the GUI controls have to increase in size because they are ordered to... But you don't want them to move nor to be clipped. So what do you expect that they should do? I'm at a loss for picturing what would be left if they neither move nor are clipped yet honor the OS font size increase.
