.Net Framework 4.7

Posted 05 May 2017 - 12:29 PM

Seems like .Net Framework 4.7 has been released a little over a month now, and it is now classed as Generally Available to the public.

The biggest shock? WinForms has gotten an update! WinForms applications can now respond to DPI changes! It does require the application to be ran on Windows 10 Creator Edition.

Lol I still do most of my development at work in WinForms, about 80% of the application is still in VB6.

Actually, I am not surprised that WinForms had to be rev'd for high DPI support considering how poor WinForms original implementation was for handling high DPI, as well as what is turning out to be the usage pattern of people with 4K screens: people are forced to jump between DPIs because of poor support for high DPI by legacy applications. The original Windows concept was that people would set their DPI once and keep using it until they attach the computer to a different monitor. I don't think that it was considered that somebody would be flipping resolution often except during the initial setup phases as the user tries to find a resolution they are comfortable working in.
