Damaged Formdesigner in new 6.80

    Hi,

    Today I got the new version 6.80.
    I started with a program I have written with version 6.50.

    1. After loading it in 6.80 I was not able to load in 6.50 anymore.
    How it seems is the header of the 6.80 source file not compatible downwards to 6.50.

    2. All forms of my program were damaged: labels and textboxes were displaced in right direction, sometimes out of the boundaries of the former screensize.

    3. The form designer doesn't keep the changed parameters of labels or textboxes.

    The crazy thing is that normal compiling works without problems, all labels or textboxes are after compiling on their correct places.

    After looking with a texteditor through the source code it seems that only the formeditor misinterpretes the code.

    I have attached a screenshot of Form1 from opensource example "accounts".

    Can you describe the problem you see in the screenshot?

    First the original sourcecode:
    "addtextbox(form1,txtRemarks,75,110,145,45,"",255,255,255,0,0,0,True,True,True,9)@"

    Two screenshots:

    1. Accounts_Form1a.jpg:
    Compare the shown parameters with these from the source code - they are different and in the form editor out of border

    2. Accounts_Form1b.jpg:
    If I click on screensize -> default, then I get this picture.
    All textboxes are cut at the border

    Just another example:

    First I edit and save Form1: test01.jpg
    After invoking the form editor once more I get: test02.jpg
    The differences and problems now should be seen clearly.

    I see it now.
    From the screenshot it seems like you are using a custom DPI settings. Is this true?
    You can check these settings by right clicking on the desktop Display Settings - Advanced Settings.

    Yes, thats true. I am using 120dpi. But I changed it to normal (96dpi) - trouble is just the same.
    Maybe it depends on the new autoscale-stuff?

    Tom

    Edit:
    Correction:
    After changing to 96dpi and a reboot the formeditor works how it should be.
    Is there a solution without changing the dpis?

    It is not related to the autoscale feature.
    Did you restart your computer after changing it to 96dpi?

    Currently no.
    We will further investigate this issue and find a better solution.

    Thank you for your advise.
    What about the compability to 6.50? Is it possible to change back to 6.50?

    V6.80 files are not compatible with V6.50 files.
