VG.net 11.8 Released

VG.net 11.8, for Visual Studio 2019, was recently released. This release is to support Visual Studio 2019 and other than those changes, includes only documentation changes. Because the previous release, VG.net 10.7 for Visual Studio 2017, used a faulty installer, it may have installed fine, but you ...

Re: Text formatting

Hello, Formatting text is quite a complex topic. What you describe should not be so complex, but it requires to know exactly where each string of contiguous styling is precisely positioned. Using separate PointText objects for each style is the simplest solution. You may have to tweak the positionin...

Re: Visual Studio 2017 support and other questions

Hello Andrew,

I will send an email regarding the cost but the other questions, I will answer here later. I sent you a private message for the SDK documentation download. The SDK is simpler than you imagine.

Re: Visual Studio 2017 support and other questions

Hello Andrew, Yes, it should be done this fall. No, source code is only included for samples and demonstrations. Animation is via imperative code in timer callbacks, not rules. The Visible property can be modified at any time for any Element. There is no nesting limit. I suggest to learn about GetBo...

Re: PointText

Hello Euan,

I could not reproduce the problem. I did note you are using Millimeters as a size unit. This is rare. I don't know if there is any bug with this unit, but world coordinates are generally the best unit, as they are independent of DPI.

Re: PointText

Hello Euan, Usually when there is a problem like this, I try drawing an Element in the designer, where I can control all properties via the property grid. This is much faster than changing code and re-running the program. In this case, I can think of only these potential problems: The text created v...

Re: Any support for VS 2015 in the works?

Hello Hugh,

Yes, we were previously working on a VM, and will now switch to the release version on a real machine. I am getting the feeling that Microsoft made less changes to Visual Studio this time.

Re: Text Box Controls

R19Dymn, You can use pixels as the unit for specifying the height of text. The actual size of a pixel depends on DPI, and on the Windows operating systems, DPI is not a true figure -- they made it customizable, so it never reflects the actual dots per inch on any real hardware, except by chance. To ...

Re: VG.net 8.5 Released

Hello, This release is only to support Visual Studio 2013. It is only worth an upgrade if you use that version. If you have a very old version of VG.net, please look at the VG.net 8.5a Readme file, which contains a change log. There only thing not mentioned in that log are minor documentation improv...
