As seen in another thread, the designer has become useless with dialog boxes that are not rendering correctly. Almost every one is corrupt, from the opening "pick a project", to generate source code. This was seen in both 5.6 and now 5.7 on multiple machines.

All machines are running on Dell 27" monitors, 2560 x 1440.

Really need this to be fixed because now I am unable to generate code and it's costing me money - loss of income!

Ok! Thank you @aschr for the suggestion of moving the dialog window. That actually "fixes" the issue on both laptops. Life-saver Regular Smiley

It is a strange issue, glad my "fix" gets you going.

As we can't reproduce this, could you confirm you're running the following:

- windows 10 2004 (Arschr runs 2004 according to his post, which might have something to do with it)
- you're using 100% scaling in windows 10 (so no scaling in the OS)
- you're not using remote desktop

Other things you could tell us about the system would be great. We hope it will then make us reproduce the issue and then work on something that fixes it.

In any case, we'll update the devexpress controls to the last version and we'll not set the 'saved' window size on some dialogs (so they'll have their initial size), to see if that fixes things for you, in a hotfix build later today. We're in the dark here what it might be, but hopefully this trial/error approach leads to a working designer again for you Regular Smiley

Additionally, do any of you use a specific Skin in the designer or do you use the default? Are you using the designer standalone or inside vs2019?

We've uploaded 2 installer builds (5.7.1, so 5.7.1 hotfix), both have upgraded devexpress controls to the latest version and one also has the dialog resizing to the latest size switched off. We also switched HiDPI to v2 (win10), to see if that makes a difference.

If you could test these whether that'll be super, I hope one of them fixes it Regular Smiley

No reply, so I guess things have sorted out.

No offense but I posted these the same day. Anyway, as we can't reproduce the issue ourselves, and we've upgraded to the latest control set of DevExpress, all we can do is hope that this fixes it. There's no other way thing to do on our side anyway.

Don't see attached installers, so I installed LLBLGen Pro v5.7.1 Hotfix Build from account page.
If that has the changes you made to UI code, no joy.

See attached.
red arrows are dialogs as opened that don't accept input (see the way the right edge of text boxes is staggered).

green arrows are after grabbing header and shaking dialog. These accept input. (Notice text boxes right edges have realigned).

Just for the record, if you downgrade the resolution of the monitors, would it fix the issue?

The hotfix is from june and doesn't have the changes I made to the two test builds.

So let's try again:
I made two testbuilds, both have DevExpress 2020 controls (the latest), which is an upgrade to the ones in the hotfix/rtm build. It might be it's a bug in their controls. I also made a build with an additional change, namely that dialogs aren't resized to a previous size. If you resize a dialog the new size is preserved so next time you don't need to resize it again. I suspect this has something to do with it, as winforms doesn't react nicely to resizing and hidpi at times.

- https://www.llblgen.com/pages/files/LLBLGenPro-v571-NoResize.zip

If you would be so kind to test both or one out to see whether they fix the problem that would be great! Regular Smiley

I've extended your subscription to October 1st, could you please test these two out? Thanks in advance and sorry for this inconvenience.

Thanks for the extension. Both the test builds seem to fix the problem. If I remember correctly I can only attach 1 file per message. I was wrong 2 files.

After that I re-installed the June-25-2020 build to verify the problem was still there, it was!

First is from install LLBLGenPro-v571-DevEx2020.zip
Second is from install LLBLGenPro-v571-DevEx2020.zip

Next messages attachment show problem comes back when reverting to old build.

Screen shots from reinstalled old build.

I haven't done heavy testing of trial builds, but from quick check of the two areas I've noticed problem most, it seems resolved.

I'll install one of the new builds again and work with it over next few days and let you know if I see re-occurance.

Thanks for testing! So it's fixed with the new devexpress controls, as that's the common change between the two test versions. The no resize variant doesn't resize the dialogs to a new size you might have given them, so that's less useful. glad that it's as simple as updating the controls Regular Smiley Will push out a new hotfix build.

You can keep using the build with the new controls (I'd pick the one which still resizes dialogs), the new hotfix bits are the same as the ones you have already. New hotfix for 5.7.1 is now available which should correct this.
