Hi there,

My question is this: When I'm compiling the program in computer where system font size is large, after that the same program i'm executing in the computer where system font size are small, all components (especially DBGrid) are displaced and they not looking how I designed in the computer where system fonts were small size.

Thanks in advance

This problem is not yet very well solved. You can set the Scaled property of a form to True (but I think this happens by default) to enable it to scale itself and all its child windows accordingly, but you'll always have problem with text as fonts aren't scaled at all.

What you can try, though, is to set Scaled to False and design your forms so that they look pretty with small and large fonts.

Ciao, Mike
