Thanks, Eddie.

That's what I thought. Windows itself is badly designed (well it grew, it wasn't designed!). I think for now I'll stick with the 120dpi version as it looks OK, and works fine. Am in ...

Thanks Eddie -- on my original computer I have the standard 96 dpi. On the new computer, at full 3840x2160 resolution, it's 240 dpi, and when reset to 1920x1080 it's 120 dpi. I can live with 120 dpi w ...

Thanks Eddie and Paul. I have made sure the DPI awareness call is the first in the program. I still get only a tiny window in top left corner of the screen. I can reduce the screen resolution (for exa ...

Hi Eddie (and all!) -

I have a problem which seems to be related. A program developed on a laptop with "normal" sort of resolution, 1366 x 768. It uses various Clearwin+ windows and a Cle ...

Thanks, John. Useful websites. I think first pass, will split the number 10 / 9 digits and see how it goes!

Many thanks for the quick and helpful reply! I wrote microseconds (hence 3 more digits) but 19 digits probably means it's actually nanoseconds!

I certainly don't need all that precision, though we ...
