    I would love a Control to automatically scale the form and all (or some) of the controls on the form as it is resized.  I tried http://www.fengarisoftware.com/Default.aspx?tabid=105, but it does not work correctly with your controls.  I suspect just does not know how to find all the properties correctly since it is all custom.

    I woudl like to know if this is at all a possibility as I am developing an application to run of HUGE resolutions where the user could be 60+ feet away.

    Maybe there is a way to get your controls to resize correctly with their control?


    Thank you

    Hello Scott,

    Currently we're not planning to provide a control to scale the form and controls.

    I experimented with a RadTextBox and a RadButton using the third-party tool you mentioned, and both of them scale correctly. Could you provide me with an example or a list of our controls that do not work correctly with this tool? This would allow us to look into your problem in greater detail.

    Kind regards,

    Those 2 controls worked fine.  The radCombobox did not.

    The text becomes overlaid, and when it is the dropdown appears, that whole part of the control is still the original size.  It's seem that it does not inherit the new size.

    Also I used that shaped form with the radTitlebar.  The title bar resized, but the images did not.

    I can e-mail the solution to you if you would like.

    Hi Scott,

    Thank you for your feedback. Indeed, the drop-down part of  RadComboBox does not scale as the textbox part. Obviously there are even more problems with some of our control and the Fengari Software WinFormResizer. We're going to test the scaling of our controls with this software and will try to eliminate the major issues, but I cannot give you a time frame about that currently. Any other feedback about our controls, running in this environment will be welcome and any issues found will be added to our to-do list.

    Regards,

    Fair enough.  Do you have any recommendations on how I can implement something similar myself?  Maybe using the built in scaling features of the controls? (I do not have time to try to get it to work before asking)

    Thank you.

    Hello Scott,

    Unfortunately, the problem with the drop-down portion of the RadComboBox is more complicated and cannot be solved using the build-in scaling features. Currently we are not able to provide you an alternative solution for this task. As I've mentioned, we're going to test our controls in different scaling scenarios and certainly will provide a solution for all found issues.

    All the best,
