Managing font on project
« on: January 22, 2009, 08:30:46 am »
Many projects (PeaZip, Lazarus itself) uses single source archive which can be compiled for all supported platforms without any font management problem (font too big, unequal spacing, etc).

I have Lazarus compiled with GTK2 and I try to build my Windows app (WinAPI -> GTK2). When I run it, the spacing looks really bad. Some writings are gone, one on top of another, etc. But Lazarus compiled from the same source using 3 different widgetset (WinAPI, GTK1, GTK2) doesn't have this problem.

How can I achieve this?

AutoSize the controls to make sure the controls are big enough. Use anchoring to make sure the controls don't overlap. See wiki for more details.
