BarManagerProperties.ScaleIcons Property

Gets or sets whether icons for bar items are automatically stretched to match the current DPI settings of the user's monitor.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraBars

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraBars.v20.1.dll


public bool ScaleIcons { get; set; }
Public Property ScaleIcons As Boolean

Property Value

Type Default Description


true, if bar item icons are scaled to match the current DPI settings; otherwise, false.


Increasing the DPI of your monitor alters the apparent size of screen items. Use the ScaleIcons property to specify whether bar item icons should match the DPI settings of the user's monitor. If this property is set to true, the bar item icons are scaled up if the DPI is increased and vice versa. Otherwise, the icons will remain a constant size in terms of pixels.

You can use the Boolean BarManagerProperties.LargeIcons property to double the display size of bar icons. This property works regardless of the current display resolution.

Alternatively, to provide a more comfortable method of icon representation, you can use bar items that allow displaying large images (BarLargeButtonItem).
