Unfortunately the HTMLViewer shows webpages still at 50% size when compiling a HiDPI app on Windows. The bug report for this error is from 2016.
I need this for showing a news window of my software. Switching to Webkit is no option for me, because it blows up the app size from a few MB to about 120 and I am developing only a small compression tool.
Is there a change that this can be fixed soon? Because I can control the HTML in the viewer I could use a css solution to make the website scale in 200% what will hopefully be 100% on Windows HiDPI.
Has someone come across this bug and has a non Webkit solution? Maybe from MBS plugins etc.
Yup - that’s a massive overkill just to display some HTML content properly in HiDPI enabled Windows applications.

HTMLViewer is not scaled on HiDPI screens.[/quote]
This is not entirely true… You can get
Renderer: Native to show content with proper HiDPI scaling.
The workaround is to set the following Registry Value for the application (before first instantiating a
MyAppName.exe = 1
I’ve added this information to <https://xojo.com/issue/43991> along with an example project and ScreenShots.
Maybe Xojo will at least add that information to the HTMLViewer Documentation.
I don’t know what will happen on Windows 7/8/8.1… if someone cares to test, thanks
I’ve just tried that quickly. Seems to works just fine and as expected with Windows 7 (150%) and Windows 8.1 (200%).
