Pixaleted fonts on axis -> Delphi Seattle

Post by Brian » Wed Sep 16, 2015 7:25 am

Hi
I am using Delphi Seattle :) (great version too)
was using XE6
I notice now that the font quality on the axis on tchart on FMX is not very good (compared to how it was in XE6)
especially when smaller font size is used
and it really shows up badly pixaleted when you make the form scale larger (i.e if its on a tlayout and you set the scale of that higher than 1)
I tried playing around with the quality settings in the labelsfont setting but that did not help
what am I missing?
(in testing I see the same thing occurs in XE7 (but XE6 is OK)
thanks!

Hello Brian,

Have you tried the latest TeeChart version v2015.16 in RAD XE6 to check if the problem is in the IDE or in the component?

I've made a simple test and this is how it looks with RAD 10 and TeeChart v2015.16:

Hi
the issue is when its on a tlayout and that is then increased in scale
e.g via a spinbox
layout1.Scale.x:=layout1.Scale.x+spinbox1.Value/10;
layout1.Scale.y:=layout1.Scale.y+spinbox1.Value/10;

I could duplicate the problem with your test project

great
thanks for the great support :)
I am surprised no one has come across this problem before, seeing that its been there since XE7 (i.e the problem occurs in XE7 too)
(now that I am using DX as my main IDE thats when I noticed the problem :) )
hopefully you can figure out what has changed from the XE6 version of the component :)
