[WM24] Question about resolution
January 29, 2020 09:18AM
Hello guys,

prior to purchasing windev mobile, I was told by the sales rep that for implementation of my apps to different devices of different resolutions can be done automatically, but after all of the testings this has never been the case with menus going far out of bounds, certain texts and fonts being too big or too small, and anchoring doesn't solve the problem, and I have never gotten a straight answer from PCSoft either hence I was wondering if you guys know if it is possible to properly scale the app to the device it is being deployed to?

For now I ended up making multiple versions of my app following the resolutions of my test devices, but moving forward I don't think this is feasible as there would be multitudes of differing resolutions down the line, hence I will need to see if it is possible to make it so that the app can be compatible with other resolutions without breaking the designs.

this is done via the anchoring setting for each field.

I tried that before but it would still go out of bounds for smaller resolution devices, and too small for bigger resolution devices

Is there really no way to allow for compatibility with different resolutions in Windev? Is it really this restrictive? Because manually changing the resolution is nothing more than just a bandaid, especially in this day and age where there are multiple devices with a wide range of different resolutions, and anchoring doesn't help matters

Hi, there is anchoring, didn't you try?

Kind regards,

yes I tried anchoring, on smaller screens the UI goes beyond the borders, on bigger screens it is still too small. So either I am using anchoring wrong, or there is something that I missed

Hi, of course, you have to calculate the anchoring yourself!

If you want a control to gain 40% in width and still stay in the center of the screen then you have to move it 30% to the right, 40% is for the control's width and 30% are left to the right of the control. Same goes for positioning the controls vertically.
