mergMK and resolution independence...

Post by paulsr » Thu Jul 09, 2015 12:46 pm

Unless I'm very much mistaken, or have misunderstood something, mergMK does not respect resolution independence settings.

Specifically; I have an app in which I use:

Code: Select all

set the fullscreenmode of this stack to "letterbox"
The effective resolution on any iDevice is then 1024x768 or 768x1024.

It doesn't matter what iPad or iPhone I run the app on, everything is correctly placed.

Until I try to display a map on an iPhone. It's correctly placed on an iPad, but on an iPhone it looks like a dog's breakfast. i.e., it's not where I want it to be.

Is there an easy fix for this or do I have to figure out what the device is and then place the map accordingly? That would be tedious.

There is still no way for an external to translate a point or rect from LC to native points if you use one of the fullscreen modes unfortunately.
