Installation is painfully slow

With the "updated" installation downloading the required libraries, it now takes TChart a really long time to install--longer than any other 3rd party library I have (and I have quite a few). This is especially true when the internet is slow. I really hope you go back to the prior installation metho...

Metafile rendered incorrectly, Bitmap is fine

Seattle, Projects/Options/Application: Enable High-DPI turned off I know I posted this in a previous thread, but the subject and problem changed from the initial post and I didn't get a response from my last post (dated June 7th) which is very unusual. In creating an graphic from a chart (which I do...

Re: Charts, Images and Display Settings

Indeed I reproduced it, but I'm not sure we'll be able to support scales different to 100% without enabling the Manifest. Note the On[Before/After]MonitorDpiChanged events don't fire and Monitor.PixelsPerInch always returns 96. But why would the TMetafile image be messed up at all if the system doe...

Re: Charts, Images and Display Settings

Thank you for responding. Turning on manifests about ruins the GUI in my application. Also note that a BMP works fine here, it is only the WMF that doesn't work. If it would just create the same WMF as before--it seems it must be reading scaling in one place and not in another. You stated: ..but I'm...

Re: Charts, Images and Display Settings

I posted this a few days ago and haven't heard anything back. Can you confirm that you can reproduce it? It is a critical issue for my customers.

Re: Charts, Images and Display Settings

**Finally after years of living wit this bug** I figured out how to recreate the problem without printing, but it was not easy (several hours, including another programmer, just today). With the attached demo (same as before-but it does have printing features, but won't need that): 1) In the IDE tur...

Re: Charts, Images and Display Settings

Thank you for this code! This seems to work (there are a lot of computers that it needs to be tested on, so I am a bit slow to get too excited)… **except** when I don't want display setting scaling. This is when I go to print--I create images of the chart for a report, and the fonts and chart get al...

Re: Charts, Images and Display Settings

> What TeeChart version are you using? v 2018.24 :-) I did some testing on different computers in the office and am getting differerent results--and non predictable results. My customers are seeing lots of problems with this. (The high DPI issues are another issue, which, on some computers, create a...

Re: Charts, Images and Display Settings

It is quiet, but by far, this is the biggest problem and support issue with our software. Any suggestions on this? Does Steema recognize it as a bug or is there something I can work on?

Re: Unable to run demo

I don't have Berlin installed.

I do wish there was a way to install the demo program separate from the binary versions--the binary versions have to do a download, and I have been switching between various chart versions lately (because of a bug posted, discussed in a separate thread).

Charts, Images and Display Settings

I create images from TCharts to put in my reports (using Digital Metaphors TppReport). Everything is fine when Display/Scale and Input/Change the size of text, apps and other items is at 100%, but when that number changes, all bets are off: fonts appear incorrectly, and the reports simply do not wor...

Re: Exception moving mouse in .23

FWIW: this occurs in .24 as well, but when I reverted to .22 the problem went away.
