  1. In Topic: Calculate Area Of Polygons And Irregular Area

    Posted 9 Mar 2014

    Hey minnie mouse

    I'm sorry, I didn't log in for few months and I didn't see your post until now.

    What do you mean with the switch statement. Where are you on the code?
  2. In Topic: Adjust Control's Size/Position With Screen Resolution

    Posted 9 Mar 2014


    The font size is a read only property. You can't change it on runtime. If you want a different font or different size, you need to create a new font every time, like this:

    Dim FontName As String = "Arial"
    Dim FontSize As Integer = 14
    Dim FS As New Font(FontName, FontSize, FontStyle.Regular)
    Label1.Font = FS

    Due to the fact that the monitor display of your users could be of any size and any resolution choice, you can't have a single font. A workaround would be to create few fonts of the same style, but different sizes, and depending on your resizing ratio you could choose one of them. You could set an "if block" or a "select case block" and apply the new font, depending on the ranges.
