if you change PC's text size to 125% and run Demo Application, LayoutControl, Frist look - the layout is different then in 100% text size, also resizing works other way. Is it possible to make LayoutControl work same way in 100% and 125% text size?

In R2 2017 we introduced built-in HDPI support in the Progress® Telerik® UI for WinForms suite. If your application is declared as DPI aware, RadControls will scale their UI elements in accordance to the current DPI settings automatically.
yes, i have 2017.2.613.40 and perhaps there is some bug in LayoutControl of that release. RadControl.EnableDpiScaling is not available there to try, and I don't want to upgrade to later version yet. Will try to use another approach instead of LayoutControl
In R3 2017 we introduced the EnableDpiScaling property that allows you to enable/disable this on a global level. This is a static property of RadControl and must set before any controls are initialized, e.g. in the form's constructor.
Feel free to upgrade to at least this version in order to benefit from the new improvements. Otherwise, you can disable the DPI scaling in the manifest file:
Should you have further questions please let me know.
