A Windows thing?
Good data, Jim. Thanks.
And drives the point home well for Peter and the rest of us:
Even in the US market, where larger monitors are more common, 1366x768
is still the most popular and a good choice to optimize for as a minimum.

Hello Peter -
Scaling is tempting, but problematic.
Automating that with the stack's scaleFactor would be quick, but will
scale everything, even controls the user needs to interact with. If the
default size is good will they be usable at a smaller size? will text be
The following is only one opinion of many possible.
First, you should consider automatic scaling only with a very restricted amount
of cases. These are for example sort of games, where the "playing field" is
the better the larger it is, and the icons / images and their relative
Thanks, that seems to be a good idea. I don’t have option menus, and I could
reset the window position after the scaling.

I was faced with the same issue and for me I ended up adding a "View"
menu to the menubar with user selectable sizes. Since scaleFactor was
not really meant to be used this way there are some drawbacks, the main
one being that the window will move on screen. It will not grow/shrink
This is probably too simple an answer, but for database applications, resizing
of windows is not a feature they allow, and there is almost always a "minimum
monitor size" requirement so that the form fits inside any window the system
Windows has a feature to increase the monitor
I’m needing to allow the user resize a stack window using scaleFactor and am
needing advice about interface.
First of all, I see that some Livecoders are using scripts to scale controls
and text when the user drags the stack size larger or smaller. In my case,
there are too many controls
