Detailed Description

Fl global screen functions declared in <FL/Fl.H>.

FLTK supports high-DPI screens using a screen scaling factor. The scaling factor is initialized by the library to a value based on information obtained from the OS. If this initial value is not satisfactory, the FLTK_SCALING_FACTOR environment variable can be set to a value FLTK will multiply to the OS-given value. The 2 variants of functions Fl::screen_scale() allow to programmatically get and set scaling factor values. The scaling factor value can be further changed at runtime by typing ctrl-/+/-/0/ (cmd-/+/-/0/ under macOS). FLTK sends the FL_ZOOM_EVENT when the factor value is changed, to which a callback can be associated with Fl::add_handler(). By default, FLTK displays the new scaling factor value in a yellow, transient window. This can be changed with option Fl::OPTION_SHOW_SCALING.

Function Documentation

◆ keyboard_screen_scaling()

void Fl::keyboard_screen_scaling ( int  value)
static

Controls the possibility to scale all windows by ctrl/+/-/0/ or cmd/+/-/0/.

This function should be called before fl_open_display() runs. If it is not called, the default is to handle these keys for window scaling.

Note
This function can currently only be used to switch the internal handler off, i.e. value must be 0 (zero) - all other values result in undefined behavior and are reserved for future extension.
Parameters
value0 to stop recognition of ctrl/+/-/0/ (or cmd/+/-/0/ under macOS) keys as window scaling.

◆ screen_dpi()

void Fl::screen_dpi ( float &  h,
float &  v,
int  n = 0 
)
static

Gets the screen resolution in dots-per-inch for the given screen.

Parameters
[out]h,vhorizontal and vertical resolution
[in]nthe screen number (0 to Fl::screen_count() - 1)
See also
void screen_xywh(int &x, int &y, int &w, int &h, int mx, int my)

◆ screen_num() [1/2]

int Fl::screen_num ( int  x,
int  y 
)
static

Gets the screen number of a screen that contains the specified screen position x, y.

Parameters
[in]x,ythe absolute screen position

◆ screen_num() [2/2]

int Fl::screen_num ( int  x,
int  y,
int  w,
int  h 
)
static

Gets the screen number for the screen which intersects the most with the rectangle defined by x, y, w, h.

Parameters
[in]x,y,w,hthe rectangle to search for intersection with

◆ screen_scale()

void Fl::screen_scale ( int  n,
float  factor 
)
static

Sets the value of the GUI scaling factor for screen number n.

Also sets the scale factor value of all windows mapped to screen number n, if any.

◆ screen_scaling_supported()

int Fl::screen_scaling_supported ( )
static

See if scaling factors are supported by this platform.

Returns
0 if scaling factors are not supported by this platform, 1 if a single scaling factor value is shared by all screens, 2 if each screen can have its own scaling factor value.
