Borders on edit fields disappearing (WD 23) when screen is zoomed

Borders on edit fields disappearing (WD 23) when screen is zoomed
October 31, 2018 03:32PM
Hi, I converted my windev project to V23 yesterday (from 23) I'm having an issue with tith text field borders in V23. The issue manifests itself on fields that are anchored to move with the screen when the screen is maximized. When fields are set up this way they lose their borders. Anybody else have experience with this? Solutions?

I've look at little more into this and the issue is being caused by using ..Zoom in screens. I have a feature in our software that allows users to change the zoom factor on screen system. They can set the percentage in their user profile and then when I open screen I use this code in initialization of screen.


IF Query_Zoom_Factor.ZoomFactor<>0 THEN

MySelf..Zoom=Query_Zoom_Factor.ZoomFactor

END

This worked great prior to V23 but in V23 the a lot of the fields lose their border. This seems to be the issue when the zoom factor is anything less that 25%.

Anyone have any ideas? Ever use ..Zoom in your programs?

Hi, this smells

a) like a problem of the graphics card ?

b) maybe there's a conflict with the settings of "enlargement" which were added in v23 ? I'd try some variations of that ...

Kind regards,

Hi Guenter,

Interestingly this only seems to occur when running app via RDP on a remote server. It does not happen on my windows 10 dev machine. It is happening on multiple Windows 2012 Servers.

I'll have to look into "enlargement" but this does not seem to be related to data. Maybe something to do with the new "layout" controls.

Hi, oh I see! RDP always has a problem with the number of colors, RDP reduces the transfer size of the remote image in order to get it through faster. Imho, there are two ways to test for a fix. Firtly, I'd look into parameters for the RDP, perhaps there's a way to tweak the number of colors. Second, I'd try to change the border of the edit controls for a test then. Use a simple color. You could check by reducing the shown colors of your graphics card - if there's a way.

Regards, G. Predl

Oddly though, this did not happen prior to V23 and only happens when zoom is between less than 125 %.

Changing # of colors didn't help btw and the borders and the default black,

Hi,
I had some similar problems.
Problem started couple months ago.
Sometimes buttons cannot be clicked, lines missing in tables, etc.
In my case it was RDP problem that come with win server update.

This was solution:

Change the following group policy either locally or via GPO in an AD environment on all Terminal Servers/Remote Session Hosts:
Set the following to Disabled
Computer Configuration/Policies/Admin Templates/Windows Components/Remote Desktop Services/Remote Desktop Session Host/Remote Session Environment: Use advanced RemoteFX graphics for RemoteApp – Disabled

Hope it helps
