Resolution Problem

Postby alfrqan » Sun Aug 18, 2013 6:35 pm

Hello
I am doing personal a project but all my dialogue designs are fine in my computer but if someone is using different computer with different resolution
he/she will see my design not showing good because of resolution difference between me and him/her..
Is there any solution to this? maybe because i am using picture in background?
I am using installaware 15

thank you

Dear Alfrqan,

I may suggest you to use a 32 bit 72 dpi Image with the exact pixel size of the background frame used by your dialog.

will it work? and i think 72dpi is good for apple devices
I am using 120dpi system resolution if i make pictures with 72dpi resolution and exact size of the frame--<it will be small shown to people>---
sadly the exact size of frame and dialogue is deponding on my system resolution so It is not a solution
is there any solution? or is it possible to get system info (resolution) so i can make special dialogues for different resolutions?

Dear Alfrqan,

I may suggest you to have a look at any InstallAware dialog theme that uses BMPs with dialogs ( ... as for example the "Swoosh" theme").
The size of the image is automatically scaled to fit the screen and then proportionally, it will occupy the same dialog area.

If you want, you can create several dialogs for several target screen resolution (use "Get System Setting" to retrieve the target Screen DPI Setting).

Anyway, I may suggest you to try to find a BMP resolution that best fits all the possible target (72/75 dpi is the default resolution generally used ... but you can try with an higher value) instead of creating a set of dialog for each one.
