DPI Aware Applications
I found an interesting write up discussing DPI Scaling behavior, end user options and developer requirements on Jim Mathies’ blog: “XP Style DPI Scaling”.
That post was missing links to other resources; here are a few I am aware of:
- Creating a DPI Aware Application – MSDN
- High DPI Support in Windows Vista Aero – Greg Schechter
- DPI Scaling in Windows Vista – Kam VedBrat
WPF – a free ride, except for Bitmaps
Sometimes WPF developers think they don’t need to do anything for high DPI. You have to do much less, but not nothing. The MSDN article goes into what any bitmap images should be doing in your application to deal well with different DPIs.
