Windows open up far too large for a small display
Unfortunately the size of windows and dialogs is hard coded in the programs' resources. Microsoft offers predefined resources for two display resolutions:
- A) Full VGA landscape - this is what we implemented in the Colibri image
- B) QVGA portrait
Beside this it is possible to ...
- C) edit all the resources by hand using a resource editor - a time consuming operation. There's a way to make the windows somewhat smaller, but it does not completely solve your problem:
- D) You can reduce the font size by Registry settings. The windows will automatically get a little bit smaller.
For options B) and C) the Windows CE image needs to be recompiled with the new resources. Platform Builder is needed for this step.
