high DPI display problems

WinApp , DPI , .NET Melbourne, Australia

    Hi All,

    I have a problem with the display of our .NET Windows application under high dpi settings.

    All forms are set to AutoScaleMode = DPI, but this does not solve all the problems.

    Basically labels end up expanding in size to cope woth the font being bigger, but the location of other controls does not change and we end up with lables obscuring other controls or eachother.

    The screen should look like this: http://www.manageinvest.com/good.jpg ..and on high DPI it ends up looking like this:http://www.manageinvest.com/bad.jpg

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance,
