    I have a ShapedForm with 201 of width and 435 of Heigth. The application runs fine on machines with Windows Vista and XP with English Language. However when running on Windows XP Japanese Language machines  the form display with size of 201x402 cropping the button of form.

    I tried to run the application in machines with WinXP -JP with SP3 with .NET2, .NET3, .NET3.5 and in machines with WinXP-JP without any service pack and .NET2. I am using RadControls for WinForms Q1 2009 SP1.

    What is the cause of this difference o form renderization?

    Hi Mauro,

    Thanks for contacting us.

    In fact, there might be different reasons for the behavior that you describe.
    I presume that the AutoScaleMode property of your Form is set to Font and thus the Form is resized according to the Font size used within.

    Could you please try setting this property to None and see whether it will prevent you form from sizing incorrectly?

    Thanks for you time.

    Sincerely yours,
