    Forcing windows font system size to 100%

    How can I ignore window's font size scale settings? Because if the font size is set to 125% or above my app will be completely wasted as dozens of controls will overlap and text itself will be cut in 90% of the cases. Not to mention that one of my forms got destroyed when I opened it in my new...

    This function is not fully working

    Can someone please try to figure out what is happening here? I'm trying to apply the Multiply filter, similar to the one Photoshop uses by crossing the RGB values between two images.

    Best solution for 2D drawing?!

I need a solution to draw images, rectangles and text fast and clean, but it must also be cross-plattaform, I believe this leaves me only with OpenGL...
