Smart Resizing and High DPI issues in Remote Desktop Manager
It’s been a while since I’ve posted here, but I thought it was a good time to publish a new blog. I’ve recently been working on two issues — smart resizing and high DPI in Remote Desktop Manager (RDM is our product that centralizes all your connections and passwords). I thought it would be a good idea to share with you not only the problems we’ve encountered, but also the solutions we’ve implemented.
#1. Smart Resize bug in RDP 8.1
Starting with Windows 10, we began experiencing issues with the smart sizing. Sometimes the RDP control wouldn’t properly refresh and then it wouldn’t be possible to click anywhere in it. It happened every time the parent form was maximized. This issue was often reported on our forum by our users.
This became one of the most annoying bugs in Remote Desktop Manager. I was able to reproduce the same issue in RDCMan (Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Manager) and knew it had something to do with the ActiveX. I’ve tried many workarounds, such as: forcing a refresh of the window; resizing the window; and switching the Smart Sizing on and off. None of these attempts have succeeded.
