Hi All

While trying to scale the Marker icon to look bigger on a tablet, I ran into an issue where the Marker icon look chopped ( only a small part of it shows ).

The code below shows the working code followed by the code that will cause the issue.

    Dim BitmapDescriptor1 As BitmapDescriptor
    Dim BitmapDescriptorFactory1 As BitmapDescriptorFactory

        'This code works ok  
        'This code shows chopped icons
    'Dim bBitMap As Bitmap = LoadBitmap(File.DirAssets, TLocalMarker.TMarkerSettings.IconFile)

Can someone clarify please

Thanks in advance

You should use different icons (with different sizes) and always use 160 as the multiplier.

Thanks Erel for the suggestion, but I was trying to avoid this in the first place as there are many different types of icons used in our case.

I was hoping for a solution that I can use without having to recreate the icons...

Thanks for the help

Create a single large image and resize it at runtime with CreateBitmapScaled.

The original issue was encountered with CreateScaledBitmap, that's when you recommended to use SetBitmapDensity

Don't worry about it at this point, you have more important things to do for all of us. I will use different icon sizes.

Thank you for the exceptional support
