Hello! Someone wrote on the pnp forum here (https://www.kristshell.net/pnp/forum/viewthread.php?tid=414) and I was left wondering if the undocumented 'map' option for dialogs would solve issues where windows desktop scaling affects dialog sizes? Does anyone know?

regards

You just have to try to find out. Yes is the most probable answer, but this is an undocumented feature without a whole lot of documentation.

Well. At least I won lunch.

It's documented on wikichip from this thread:

When the "dbu" option was added long ago, it worked correctly for the majority of people, however the method it used was a generic dialog sizing method. The "map" option is an updated method that uses the now recommended method for mapping dialog sizes across different versions of Windows with different system fonts and DPIs.
Yes is the only answer.
