usePixelScaling

Dear Runrev.... My app may be used by older people who have their grandsons set their OS DPI to > 100% . Is the usePixelscaling property really not going to work on Windows? This is actually a backwards compatibility thing that really just BREAKS backwards compatibility for all past version stacks f...

Re: Strange Scrolling performance and even stranger fix

I think I will just use this workaround for now..... this is probably not something that can be diagnosed without looking at the full stack. Thanks for efforts.

Re: Strange Scrolling performance and even stranger fix

Hi Richard, the whole thing lock screen lock messages go to different card go to original card unlock messages unlock screen is at the end of the handler and that solves the problem. The problem is the handler is one that goes through every control of the group and changes its properties ...(enable/...

Strange Scrolling performance and even stranger fix

Hi everyone, I have a card with a group that I scroll to reveal content. The performance is really fast and really good.... except that I seem to have to leave the card and then come back.

Lets send a message when MAXIMIZE stack is pressed

Hi Runrev, please send a message when the maximize stack button is pressed ... there are workarounds, but they don't actually work 100%.

It actually blows my mind a little that there isn't a message sent.... is there an actual reason for that?

Thank you,

Tom
