Zoomify plugin Forms

Post by wjstarck » Sun Nov 22, 2020 12:15 pm

Zoom is pretty cool. :D

What is the best way to 'Zoomify' my plugin Forms?

I was able to scale a button that I added to FormProcEdit like so:

Code: Select all

			butLocal.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(387, 208);
			int xlocation = 387;
			int ylocation = 208;
			xlocation = sender.LayoutManager.Scale(xlocation);
			ylocation = sender.LayoutManager.Scale(ylocation);
			butLocal.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(xlocation, ylocation);
			butLocal.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(120, 24);
			butLocal.Size = sender.LayoutManager.ScaleSize(butLocal.Size);
Which works fine but I'm a little lost as to how to scale an entire Form in my plugin

1. Inherit your form from FormODBase.
2. Add InitializeLayoutManager(); just below InitializeComponent(); in the constructor.
3. If you did any control movement or resizing in code, use the LayoutManager.Move for those lines.
4. Test by dragging to resize and by also dragging to a different monitor with different scale.
So the problem with the lines below is that you didn't use LayoutManager.Move. This means the layout manager doesn't know you moved them. The next time it goes to do a layout, it will move them back to where it thinks they need to be. Alternatively, you could set the size and position before you add the button. Then you would use LayoutManager.Add only on that line, not the lines before.

Thanks for that.

I have managed to 'Zoomify' all my forms, but the bottom of this one will get clipped off when I click Fit:

The form is 783 pixels tall, and is the tallest of all my forms. So should I just manually adjust the Zoom scale so that it fits (here it is at additional scale of 80 instead of 95)?

90 is too much. Change your monitor scale in Windows first to be more reasonable, then add a little bit more inside of OD if necessary.
