Title: DPI for Samsung Galaxy S4
Post by: Kitty Hello on 2013-Jun-08
Hi,
Has anyone got such a device to test?
Can you use V11 and tell me what Platforminfo$("DPI") returns?

Many thanks

It has to be a Samsung Galaxy S4? because my current device is a Samsung Galaxy Ace, and i plan to buy a INCO QUOS tablet with Android 4.2

Maybe its better to create a app and host it on a server .
Many friends have many devices but cant give it you for testing .
Send the result as email after testing is imho ok .

someone with that device complained about tiny buttons. But myGCK should be DPI aware now. I might send him an debug app. Or, we should make one "Platforminfo" App for people who complain, that give us the proper information we need.

as im a aware, its should return 0.50 -> 2.00 (not remember correctly)?

Howover also alternative, you could do possible let user resize thier buttons in a option, so eventuelly tiny button (or ther other way) could have been fixed by user.... Some times im have seen, even in correct size, im fell they sometimes is too big. That can ben pretty annoying.

1 = no scaling. You cant scaling on a desktop, that why you get that number. on Android the number you get is not DPI(if he uses DisplayMetrics), but more the scaling factor you should use, so DPI its self as name is a bit wrong. Howover im do have some trouble doing that in Greedy Mouse, due im used scaling in the other way, howover butttons is resizeable, so no big deal....

damn my English!
spacfractal I'm sorry, I should not write "strange" (strange).
I answered Gernot on command on S4, but I did not know because it is the first time I use the beta version V11.

Anyone who needs to test on S4 (4.2.2), I am available .

Regards

The S4 returned 1? Like "ONE"? Or the windows desktop?
Can you send me the console output of the Android log?

Could someone create a program which lists all values returned from PLATFORMINFO$ and stick it in the Play store - would save everyone some time then!

Similarly, I have a nexus 10 and the GACK GUI is minuscule on it (10%'ish of the screen area), making it unusable unfortunately.

I confirm that on Samsung Galaxy Ace (Android 2.3.7)(3.5")(hvga)(320x480) the PLATFORMINFO$("DPI") returns "1"

On desktop compuer with Windows 7 (18")(1366x768) the PLATFORMINFO$("DPI") returns "96"

Gernot, I'm sorry but I do not understand really how to do. With the GLB or on the device?
