    On your test system, is your screen magnification set to 100%?

    The magic is you have to set FontPointHeight BEFORE the label is set, after that it just works even with fw_bold.
  10. Re: Best way of reindexing the embedded database?

    Re: Textbox Suggestion.

    well, practically, it auto-sizes just fine, as long as the Fontsize is set before the label.

    Re: Textbox Suggestion.

    the code you posted, is not the code I posted. Your code has "Set Size" explicitly. Mine does not.

    Setting the size in the studio by dragging the corners makes some strange size numbers, and...
