Autoit Window Info

4 posts in this topic

Recently got my expensive laptop back from the manufacturer from repairs and noticed discrepancies in the Autoit Window Info program between my two computers.  I  usually use the Window Info to help program scripts that I use for teaching Geometry.  I noticed that the magnify on my cheap computer works perfectly, but on my newly returned computer it seems the magnify area is displaying down one inch from where the crosshairs actually are.

Why would this be?  I checked settings in window info program on both computers, and they are the same.  Confuzzled.

JennMaughan,

Almost certainly the returned machine has had it DPI settings changed. AutoIt and its tools are not DPI aware and so the coordinates are slightly off when the setting is not 100%.

Is it possible it is because it is a high resolution monitor?  What dpi is it use to using?

JennMaughan,

Indeed. I think you will find that the DPI is set to 125% - that seems to be the norm for hi-res monitors these days. Your older machine is probably set to 100%.

There are a several threads about this on the forum.
