How to create a DPIAware Word Addin RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi to all,

    I'm developing a Word AddIn based on Word 2007 with Visual Studio 2010 and Visual Basic.

    It's possible to declare my AddIn DPIAware and therefore independent of the value of the system DPI ?

    Thanks for any help.

  • Hello Fabrizio,

    a Dll does what it does. Ther's no special setting to declare an AddIN as "DPIAware".
    You need to find out the current DPI-Setting of the System and programm your code so that it can handle it correctly.

    On a WinForm there are settings for AutoScaling and other relates stuff. I'm not a specialist in that technology.

    See if that article helps:
