Fit objects in tab control in a lower screen resolution

Solved!
Go to solution

Hello to all.

Thanks for helping me.

 

I have developed an application in a laptop of 15.6 inches.

Now I am creating a .EXE to deploy in a PLC of 15 inches.

All my front panel is a tab control which has controls and indicators inside.

 

The problem is that when I deploy de application I can not see a part of tab control (15 inches vs 15.6 inches).

How can I fit tab control to 15 inches easyly?

 

Thanks a lot.

Hi A.,

 

design your FP for the smaller resolution.

Making a FP bigger (by allowing bigger graphs etc.) is much easier then to make it smaller!

 

Btw. numbers like 15.6"/15" are irrelevant here. All that counts is the screen resolution you can use: on a Windows desktop you should also look for the size and position of the taskbar…

Thanks for replaying!

So maybe if I change resolution of PC 15inches it look good.

btw. If I develop front panel for lower resolution how can I fit it to higger resolution easyly?

Hi A.,

 

you can use splitters in your front panel to separate it into sub-parts called panes. For each pane you can decide the behaviour in case the FP window size changes. And when placing controls/indicators in those panes you can also define their behaviour regarding automatic size adaption with FP window size…

 

Point is: design your FP to look good at the smallest screen resolution you need to support. For automatic adaption to bigger resolutions use splitter bars.

If I use splitter bars then objetcs (indicators, graphs...) are getting bigger or smoller acording the splitter bar?

 

Thanks!

Hi A.,

 

objetcs … are getting bigger or smoller acording the splitter bar?

Yes, depending on your scaling settings.
