Does not handle the "Large Fonts" system setting


Thanks for the nice xml visualizer!
A tiny issue: The OK-button on the About form is not fully visible on hi-resolution-displays that use the "Large Fonts" system setting in Windows.
(Setting the Form.AutoScaleMode property to "Dpi" is one way to resolve this issue.)

Unfortunately there is not enough support in the .NET Framework (yet) to support other DPI settings than 96 DPI.

So for know it won't be supported.

What exactly is the problem with handling other DPIs? I've not looked at this code, but I suffer the same problems. None of the other OSS projects I contribute to (SharpDevelop, MQManager.NET and PlaneDisaster amongst others) have this problem

I've actually been just changing the source code to remove the DPI check and living with the misrendered form. Maybe I should try to get my screen set to 96 DPI to see how it should really look.

I have tried to get the Xml Visualizer v.2 to work with other DPI's than 96, but I haven't succeeded. The controls on the form will be messed up everytime I try. I have tried playing with the AutoScaleMode property but without luck.

You are more than welcome to suggest a solution, but a quick search on google shows that it's a common problem.

Best Regards
