WindowsFormsSettings.SetDPIAware() Method

Enables system DPI awareness mode for the current process.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraEditors

Assembly: DevExpress.Utils.v20.1.dll


public static void SetDPIAware()
Public Shared Sub SetDPIAware


In system DPI awareness mode, applications scale controls based on the DPI setting of the primary monitor. When the application is moved to a monitor with a different scale factor, the window is scaled by the system, making controls appear blurry.

The SetDPIAware method delegates its execution to the SetProcessDPIAware WinApi method.

To enable "Per-Monitor (v2)" DPI awareness mode, use the WindowsFormsSettings.SetPerMonitorDpiAware method.
