FontView 3

Post by rbytes » Sat Sep 23, 2017 9:42 pm

This is a big update. I am hoping this program can now run universally on all Windows devices. But it may need more tweaking.
Please give it a try and let me know how it works for you.

As you can see in the screenshot, I told FontView 3 to run on a 96 dpi screen instead of my actual tablet dpi of 144. Everything shrank by the right amount to fit. :lol:

Code: Select all

Here you have a very strange scaling approach.
Instead of this:

Code: Select all

dp = #.scrdpi()
rw = dp/144 ; rh = dp/144
I would suggest this:

Code: Select all

rw = x/1220 ; rh = y/800
in order to scale into screen dimensions, not into dpi.

Also I see here a bug in #.scrview function, I will fix it.

Yes dpi turned out not to be the answer. It seems that Windows already does some sort of scaling, because my previous version of FontView (version 2) created on my tablet fit my laptop screen almost perfectly. Only the bottom slider was off-screen, exactly as you saw on your laptop.

I realized right away that there was no way dpi would help this situation, since there is no way of getting separate horizontal and vertical dpi values.

Your calculation method way well be the right one. It is similar to the scaling system I developed for Smart Basic.

To get a perfect fit on my laptop screen, all I did was remove all of the "dpi" code lines at the start of FontView 3. Right below the #.scrsize() line, I added this line:

rw=1 ; rh=.8

The program then fit my laptop perfectly.
Zzzzz
