How do I get the right scale for my SurfaceImageSource at high DPI? RRS feed


  • I assume you're drawing text with Direct2D/DirectWrite? In general XAML layout is device-independent, but the app is responsible for the sizing of any custom D2D content. 

    Depending on the details of your scenario, there are a couple potential options to prevent double-scaling.

    Setting D2D's unit mode to pixels may be easiest:


    Alternatively you can account for the plateau scale by setting D2D's DPI to a fixed value via IDirect2DContext::SetDpi, or possibly by inverting the scale by applying a ScaleTransform to the XAML ImageBrush hosting the SurfaceImageSource.
