RadFrom and strange scaling effect

Dear support,

i have a RadForm and custom theme.

To reproduce the problem:

1. Configure 2. montior to have 200% Scale (Monitor2).

2. Start the solution on your main Monitor1 (with 100% Scale)

3. Click on button "radbutton1".

4. Move the shown RadForm1 from Monitor1 to Monitor2 and release it. The form will scale automatically.

5. Now move the RadForm1 back to the main Monitor1

Now you can see the effect from Form.png.

What is causing it and how to remove it?

The problem has some connection with the Anchor options from radButton1 and radButton2.

If i set them to "Top, Left", then the effect does not appear, but this way i have to set their location manually, or is there other option?

Hello, Stoyan,

The provided sample project, screenshot and detailed steps are really greatly appreciated. I confirm that it is an issue with scaling the RadForm when moving between monitors with different DPI scaling.

I have logged it in our feedback portal by making this thread public. You can track its progress, subscribe for status changes and add your comments on the following link - feedback item.

I have also updated your Telerik points.

Currently, due to the specificity of the problem, the possible solution that I can suggest is to disable the scaling. An alternative solution is to use a TableLayoutPanel for arranging the controls on the form. Thus, each control may be docked to fill the respective cell. This is expected to improve the scaling mechanism.

We will do our best to handle this problem accordingly and provide a suitable solution as soon as possible. Please excuse us for the inconvenience caused.

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
