Title: Arduino IDE window really small on High DPI Dispay?
Post by: danieldcrrose on Aug 29, 2014, 06:42 pm
I have tried scaling it and everything but the window is so small I can hardly see the icons, is there a fix to this? I have a Dell XPS 15 9530. The display is 3200x1800.

Edit preferences.txt for this kind of set-up (but not while the Arduino software
is running).

Look for configurations like this:
Code: [Select]
editor.window.height.default=800
editor.window.height.min=500
editor.window.height.min.macosx=450
editor.window.height.min.windows=530
editor.window.width.default=1200
editor.window.width.min=1000

On Linux, I just maximize the window and I have set in the Preferences a bigger font size. You only need to set the font size once though you may depending on OS maximize the window each time you start it.

I try to adjust preferences.txt but no luck. One thing that really help that using external editor. Icons is really small.

Long-term, I believe the transition to 4K displays with much higher than 100 DPI resolution is going to require a lot of work in the Arduino IDE.

The editor font can scale.  Java is responsible for rendering the menus.  But the toolbar is fixed bitmaps.  Significant programming work is going to be needed inside the IDE to truly make everything scale well to high-res 4K displays.

High DPI displays are just going to get more and more common, so I hope someone is working on a plan to fix this. You should be able to display fonts based on point size and absolute size rather depending on pixels for dimensions. It's not just the toolbars which are the improper height, it is other parts of the window as well. Changing the font size only fixes the editor. I've attached a screenshot which I have scaled down so hopefully those of you on lower DPI displays can see what it looks like.

Using: Windows 8 Lenovo laptop 2560x1440


Would anyone like to try to read "About Arduino" on my screen?  It comes out rendered about 1.75" wide and 1.5" high.  Good luck!

I successfully changed the font and font size in preferences.txt but this has no effect in the About dialog box.

           editor.font=Consolas,plain,28

The default fonts were one or two pixels wide.  Nearly invisible.  Thanks to another forum writer I changed to Consolas and can now read the screen without straining.


Best regards

If anyone is working on this problem, they haven't said anything on the Arduino Developers Mail List.  There's no apparent work happening on any of the branches or commits on Arduino's github repository.

Internally, Arduino does use fixed bitmaps and pixel coordinates for some things, like the blue/green toolbar.  It would seem all those code would need to be redesigned.

Also Swing is not yet capable of handling HighDPI Displays (i.e. read Windows Scaling value) - a problem that is not on the feature-list of the next Java Version. So it might take a long time until this is adressed by Java/Swing.


I have an 4k Display, too with the same problems mentioned above.
One solution can be (I do it that way in Java):

1: Read the current (X-)resolution of the current screen where Arduino is displayed (important not to use the absolute resolution to adress multiscreen configurations).

2: if it is higher than 1920x1080 (I only use the X-resolution) then calculate the factor
    the current resolution is higher than 1920x1080.

3: Iterate all children of JFrame and resize them (including the images used) by that factor.


It will take about 100 lines of code and it will work at least on Linux and Windows (I have no Mac to test it there).

That decision might not be so popular with people who use 27 inch and 30 inch monitors, which display 2560x1440 and 2560x1600 resolution.  They have similar same pixel density as the smaller, more common consumer screens using 1920x1080 and 1366x768 and other low resolutions.

Really, only 100 lines?

You might be right, but you might also be underestimating the number of places in the Arduino IDE that have fixed pixel coordinates.

Maybe you ought to jump into this and write some of those 100 lines?  I'll be really impressed if you manage to pull it off with so little code.

I never worked with the Arduino Source. But I just downloaded CygWin and the latest code but it may take a long while until I have a clue where to start within that code.
But here is some code I used for another Project. Maybe someone more experienced with the Arduino/Processing GUI would try to implement it.


Note: this particular code is taken from a wrapper tool I wrote that loads the original software (available as jar-file) and then accesses the JFrame component (which was not protected) and iterates all child-components. The software that I loaded with this wrapper has several "specialities" (code with fixed sizes, fixed fonts, and so on) so there is a lot of code that takes care of certain UI-elements. But the general idea should be clear.
I just translated my commentary to English - I hope they are understandable.


http://pastebin.com/cnsBBxSM


For the Arduino IDE I guess the only components that need to be adressed are those in the toolbar as well as the tabs and the status bar. Everything else just scales fine or can be set (e.g. the editor's font size).
Chances to have it done within 100 lines are not that small (I hope - even if not it does not matter as long as it will work).


Title: Re: Arduino IDE window really small on High DPI Dispay?
Post by: the-fallen on Mar 15, 2015, 04:45 pm
I just found that you can change some UI attributes within the "theme.txt"  (<arduino-path>\lib\theme\)

Unfortunately the UI-Elements do not read other attributes but font-style, fgcolor and bgcolor.
But at least you (who uses a HighDPI screen) can enlarge the font sizes a bit. This already helps (e.g. for the Tab names and status bar)

So another (and maybe better) approach could be to patch the sources of
EditorStatus,
EditorHeader and
EditorToolbar
(maybe others, too)

so that the size of Buttons and Panels can be set via theme.txt.

The theme loader (Theme.class) seems to be able to read those attributes from the theme.txt (is written quite generic).


Just found that using a Java Decompiler on pde.jar. I'll try to find that in the original source as soon as I managed it to compile Arduino from source.

Title: Re: Arduino IDE window really small on High DPI Dispay?
Post by: the-fallen on Mar 15, 2015, 07:58 pm
Here is what I managed to do:

Code Changes:

EditorToolbar.java lines 52-58
Code: [Select]

  static final int BUTTON_WIDTH  = 27 * Theme.getInteger("gui.scalefactor");
  /** Height of each toolbar button. */
  static final int BUTTON_HEIGHT = 32 * Theme.getInteger("gui.scalefactor");
  /** The amount of space between groups of buttons on the toolbar. */
  static final int BUTTON_GAP    = 5 * Theme.getInteger("gui.scalefactor");
  /** Size of the button image being chopped up. */
  static final int BUTTON_IMAGE_SIZE = 33 * Theme.getInteger("gui.scalefactor");


EditorToolbar.java line 397
Code: [Select]

    return new Dimension(3000 * Theme.getInteger("gui.scalefactor"), BUTTON_HEIGHT);



Preferences.java line 208
Code: [Select]

  static final int GRID_SIZE     = 33 * Theme.getInteger("gui.scalefactor");



Then you have to change the theme:
- Scale all images by 200%.
- Set all font sizes to the double size in themes.txt.
- add the following lines to themes.txt:
Code: [Select]

#GUI generic
gui.scalefactor = 2



That's all :)




Result:
(http://i57.tinypic.com/2zj9y02.jpg)
Left side: patched Version on 4k Monitor
Right side: original version on 4k Monitor

Patched pde.jar and theme:
http://www.file-upload.net/download-10423584/ArduinoUHD.zip.html
(contains both, resized theme and patched pde.jar. Replace file and folder in <ardinopath>\lib\, make a backup before).


Only tested with Windows-version of Arduino.



So the idea could be either to autodetect HighDPI screens and select a matching theme or let the user chose between original and highdpi theme.

Note: the code above is not suitable for a release version. ArduinoIDE will baldy fail to load if theme does not provide the scalingfactor. There have to be additional sanity checks to set scalingfactor to "1" if parameter is not provided.

I'm playing with this now, and trying to extend it to automatically adjust the fonts and images....

So far, it's working pretty well.  But perhaps more edits are needed for the white tab background and the bottom status bar?

Looks like you have not scaled your Images in the theme-folder.

Yes, the statusbar looks strange. For me it worked good (as seen on the screenshots) but maybe I just did not tested it well enough (e.g. set abnormal high font sizes).

I can do more testing tomorrow (it's 21:30 here - need to prepare for bed and work now :) ) if wished.
But great that you play with that code so there may be something useful at the end.

I'm making more progress... I've added code to automatically scale the fonts and images.
Title: Re: Arduino IDE window really small on High DPI Dispay?
Post by: the-fallen on Mar 15, 2015, 09:53 pm
Some more things that should be edited:

EditorHeader.java lines 393-396
Code: [Select]

    if (OSUtils.isMacOS()) {
      return new Dimension(3000 * Theme.getInteger("gui.scalefactor"), Preferences.GRID_SIZE);
    }
    return new Dimension(3000 * Theme.getInteger("gui.scalefactor"), Preferences.GRID_SIZE - 1);

This will set the tab-panel on the upper toolbar as large as the Button panel (in case that you enlarge the window very wide).

Just checked the problem with the status bar - if I set a font size around 50 and higher it looks as strange as on your screenshot.
But I am not sure if this is a "problem" at all - at least the font size there does not need to be that high. (a size of 24 really works fine). To solve that the status bar panel needs to resize depending on its content. Not sure if this will have more aftermaths than wished.

I'll mount myself to bed now. I am very curious what you'll find out.


Edit:
Auto-Scaling is also a great solution. It's part of the Idea posted first (see page 1 of this thread).

Ok, I think I've got all the stuff scaling from a single number.  I changed it to percentage, so you can scale by 150%, for example.

200% scaling:

Works fine here.

I have played around with the
okButton
cancelButton
editField
(components that are displayed below the Editor, e.g. if you create a new tab and ArduinoIDE asks you for the name).
Those can be found in EditorStatus.java.

If I scale them it somehow does not look pretty. It works well but simply does not look good :D
Somehow the JTextField and the Buttons look "too big".

So I would simply keep it as it is. On the other hand it might be a problem if pixel density will increase even more (maybe on an 8k display in a few years) so I am not sure if we should address that as well, now.

To anyone else reading this thread, please help test PR2776-BUILD221.

https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/pull/2776#issuecomment-81848710 (https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/pull/2776#issuecomment-81848710)

Those 5 files are complete copies of the Arduino IDE with this scaling stuff added.  After installing, edit lib/theme/theme.txt to change the scale factor.

This is a perfect way to contribute to improving Arduino, without actually editing Arduino's source code.  The Arduino devs do listen to feedback when people test those special builds, especially when it involves testing on different computers with different screen resolution and pixel density.  Features like this need testing before the Arduino devs can merge then into Arduino's code base.

Please post your fPR2776-BUILD221 feedback on the GitHub page.  That's where the Arduino devs will see it.

Do you think the Dev's would like it if you/I/we/somebody will change the code in order to have the Splash-Screen beeing loaded like any other image, too (without having checked the possiblity of doing so, yet) ?

I know you have no HighDPI display, but I do. So I have a natural interest in having the ArduinoIDE running fine on HighDPI displays :D
Title: Re: Arduino IDE window really small on High DPI Dispay?
Post by: pjrc on Mar 18, 2015, 09:08 pm
I'm probably going to buy a laptop with such a display later this year.  Seems like a good idea to wait for Windows 10 though.

Probably best to ask Frederico Fissore directly, on the GitHub issue.  He and the other Arduino devs sometimes read these forums, but they always see stuff on GitHub.

At the moment, I'm working on the library dependency detection issue... so I'm mostly moved on from work on resolution scaling.  It's mostly up to Frederico & Cristian if they want to accept this contribution.  I really don't think there's much more I can do here.

Post by: the-fallen on Mar 18, 2015, 09:26 pm
You should rather wait for any Linux Desktop Platform to support HighDPI as compfortable as you would like it :D

That's why I stick with Windows at the moment. Many programs I use (Eclipse, Gimp, ArduinoIDE and so on) simply do not scale or at least only partially. That really is a pain in the ass (I guess that is because of the lack of a common, generic interface to access such information). However, that only is a mater of time.

I will try to create a patch so the splash screen is scaled, too. If I can manage it I'll ask the Devs. If not it does not matter. The current changes will allow a normal work on HighDPI displays, that's all that really matters.

I'm actually planning to buy that new 12 inch macbook air.  It'll give me access to the latest OS-X and the latest Windows (if I wait a bit...) and a high res display, all in 1 convenient machine that doesn't take up much space.  So far, I've managed to stay on top of most software issues without good access to the very latest stuff, but Apple's new OS is causing minor issues and Windows 10 is almost certain to bring a whole new crop of problems.

I have a very tiny workbench and office, which is becoming increasingly crowded as I try to keep working hardware on-hand for nearly all Arduino libraries!

Played around with the splash screen.
It is set as a parameter to the java JRE but can be accessed within the java-code.
They already do this in Arduino\app\src\cc\arduino\view\SplashScreenHelper.java in order to draw the status text (Loading this...doing that...Starting ...) to the bottom of that splash screen.

I was able to scale the image (but it was clipped to the size of the old splash screen. I think its a matter of bounds I have not updated).

How ever - I noticed that it took a while until Java resized the Image. Felt like some few seconds (3 or 4) on my very fast PC. So I think this would not make any sense if the splash screen is resized seconds after the original one is displayed.

Maybe something comes into my mind later.

Title: Re: Arduino IDE window really small on High DPI Dispay?
Post by: the-fallen on Mar 23, 2015, 06:42 am
Had an idea:

use the Arduino Logo "laying eight" as a startup splash screen and replace it with a scaled splash-screen picture once "SplashScreenHelper" has access to it.
Should do fine because the status messages are displayed when SplashScreenHelper is loaded.

I wil try to do it myself when I find a quite hour but I'd like to share the idea.
Title: Re: Arduino IDE window really small on High DPI Dispay?
Post by: the-fallen on Mar 25, 2015, 05:02 pm
I tried to put my idea into code.
This is what I have done so far:

- once SplashScreenHelper is instanciated I get the background image URL
- loading a new instance of the splash image
- painted the new instance as a resized image to the graphics component of the splash screen


That really works so far but I need to use a trick:

- the dimensions of the splash screen can not be changed so it keeps the size of the original splash screen image.
- to be able to display a larger version I added a big transparent border around the splash image so the frame is bigger than it appears
- I display the resized instance starting a bit offscreen (depending on the scale factor) so you can display the resized instance still centered on screen.


Now the thing that does not work:
- because the original splash image has transparent areas I am not able to draw over them.
- if I make those transparent areas only 50% translucent, the new contant I will draw over it is also 50% translucent on those areas
- I found out that this is because the graphics object I get from the splash screen is an overlay to the original splash screen and this is using a SRC_ATOP rule. Under this rule, the alpha value of a pixel on the overlay remains whatever it was in the original image. This rule seems not to be changable because I have no access to the original graphic but only to the overlayed one




Maybe somebody else has more ideas?

Another solution may be not  to alter the splash screen but to display a decorationless frame once SpalshScreenHelper is instanciated and do all the magic there.

I would like to know what the developers of Arduino think before I continue so I will not waste time on ideas that are inacceptable.

Thanks in advance :)

Probably best to post this on Github, where Federico Fissore is more likely to see it.

Ultimately he's the Arduino dev in charge of that part of Arduino.  It's up to him how this stuff should be done, and what he's willing to accept and merge into Arduino.

The fact that nothing has happened on the code so far isn't a good sign though.  Maybe after the dust settles from "Arduino Day" might be good time to remind him and ask for input on the splash screen.

I just watched this past week's "Ask and Engineer" from AdaFruit and Masimo was there. He did mention that the (or one of the) focus for the next release is on the actual editor. Hopefully the changes that you guys have been working on above will be considered.

Two quick questions (but might not be a quick answers...) are the changes above compatible with the latest 1.6.4 release? And, do they resolve the issue with the library and board managers having mircoscopic text on high DPI screens? (Currently to read them comfortably I have to use Microsoft's magnifier program.)

No.  Much has changed since it was written.

That's how code contributions go.... easy to merge when they're first contributed, but harder and harder to integrate as other changes impact surrounding code.

Probably not.  That stuff was all developed privately and released as approx 120 commits with many thousands of new lines of code, only hours before 1.6.2 was published.

This high-dpi work was done based on the 1.6.1 code, and all that stuff was not available to me or any other contributors.

Yes, of course *now* you can do that, with Arduino 1.6.8.

This is an old thread, from *before* 1.6.8... and the work we did was an earlier version that Cristian Maglie reworked into the code that ultimately became the scale setting in 1.6.8.

But during the time all these other messages were written, Arduino had no such option in File > Preference.  Your is the first message written here since 1.6.8 recently released.  The scale setting only exists now because people did the work and continued asking Arduino to make it official.

Click File > Preferences.  Increase "Editor font size" and "Interface scale" settings.  Click the "Ok" button (closing the window or clicking "Cancel" will discard your changes).  Restart Arduino for your changes to take effect.
Thanks a lot for the info! And congratulations for the hard work over the years to get this issue solved!!!

On Arduino 1.8.1 while changing the startup screen settings from the Preferences menu is small and the characters in the code are difficult to read .. some items in the preference pane remain small
