Subject Jmeter display issues in HiDPI screens + user manual information probably wrong
Date Wed, 29 Jun 2016 18:39:53 GMT
​Hi,

On page: http://jmeter.apache.org/usermanual/hints_and_tips.html#hidpi

The following text appears:


The HiDPI mode isn't currently support by Java Virtual Machine 7 or 8 on
Linux or Windows, so JMeter with a HiDPI screen can be very hard to see
(little icons and chars). You can improve the JMeter's display on HiDPI
screen by changing some properties:


jmeter.hidpi.mode

set to true to activate a 'pseudo'-hidpi mode allowing to increase size of
some UI elements

jmeter.hidpi.scale.factor

set to 2.0 to scale the size of some UI elements

jmeter.toolbar.icons.size

with these values: 22x22 (default size), 32x32 or 48x48 (Suggested value
for HiDPI)

jmeter.tree.icons.size

with these values: 19x19 (default size), 24x24, 32x32 (Suggested value for
HiDPI) or48x48


​ISSUES:​

1. None of the above actually helps. Is there a better solution available?

2. I posted on QUORA a simple question:

Which Java Virtual Machine supports HiDPI display?


The answers that was giver is as follows:

These are unrelated things, a JVM does not use a display at all, let alone
a high DPI one, if you’re asking about Java UI toolkits, JavaFX supports
high DPI just fine on Windows and Mac.


So is the information on jmeter.apache.org/usermanual right or wrong ?
