    In Windows 7, changing Display setting to 125% causes RadForms to not resize properly (normal WinForms handle the change correctly).

    I've read this:  http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/winforms/dock/anchor-not-work-during-changing-text-size-to-125.aspx 

    I can't ask my customers to change their settings to fix this issue (Use Windows XP style DPI scaling).

    If I remove the suggested AutoScale settings from the designer generated code, the problem is at least partially solved, but I'm left with the labels ending up UNDER the text boxes even in my simple example (see attached images).

    radform_normal_display.png show the correct image at 100% display.
    radform_125_percent_display.png shows the labels "underlapping" the text boxes.

    Any idea what I can do to fix this?   It's preventing us from using your product for our application.

    I'm using Q2 2013 and still have major issues with display set at 125% Medium.

    Is there a property I'm not setting properly to fix this?

    Hello dbernett,
    Thank you for writing.

    In the past we had issues with those Font settings, but most of them have been resolved. I am attaching two images for reference.

    I suppose that you are experiencing a case that we have not covered. Therefore, I would kindly ask you to open a new support ticket and send us a sample project where we can observe the issue. This will allow us to this think of a workaround for your case.

    I am looking forward to hearing from you.
