After sending a few hours on getting ScaleBy working and the apps automating
re-scaling the form when running on a much lower resolution screen, I then
found it was all futile if DBGrids are on the form. The forms then end up
any unpredictable size.
Ok my design screen is 1400 x 1050. I made the form a nice 1280 x 1024. When
running on a 1024x600 netbook, the form was something like 820x650 and the
pages wern't good at all.
I tried Perfectsize which works but before the app finally displays
correctly, the main form looks like jelly for a few seconds. Possbly it
redraws the form after each compent conversion and there are a lot of
components to scale.
I tried EasySize but it crashed and looked for extra pas files that are
nowhere to be found.
I'm not looking to rescale the form as such but be able to show it correctly
on various monitors. However, it appears that correcting the Hubble
telescope mirror may be a bit easier to do. Any suggestions ?
