To do that, I first need to generate such a WM message to test it, and I have no means of doing that.

If I simply change the monitor resolution while Templot is running, I get the expected message from Windows saying that to apply the changes I must restart Windows.

In 40 years working on Templot it has never occurred to me to try to do such a thing. Not for the first time, I get the feeling I'm on a different planet from everyone else. :)

cheers,

Martin.
Plug in a digital projector , you do not restart windows 
Certainly in Windows 7 you can dynamically change screen res without needing to restart windows

madscientist wrote:Plug in a digital projectorHi Dave,

I haven't got a digital projector.

I'm fairly sure that if I had one, I would plug it in before I started Templot, not after. :)

Hot-plugging applies only to devices having a USB connector? I haven't got a USB monitor.

This is getting a bit silly. The number of users who seriously want to do this without restarting Templot must be vanishingly small.

cheers,

Martin.

of course, but its just bytes on the internet , no real work was harmed by this discussion !! :D
Also windows does not require restarts to change resolution ( except in certain circumstances ), so  it should be possible to change resolutions in the control panel. 

it should be noted that even in Microsofts very trivial example of dialog/windows creation example, the  need to handle WM_DisplayChange is shown

Anyways , all interesting stuff , back to the real world  :thumb:

Martin, I am not sure with which version of Templot I started to get this problem, but the image below shows the problem I am getting when curving a template in version 2.18.d.  The problem appears to arise when the curve is approaching the point of intersection with another curve. Any thoughts on how I can cure this behaviour?  If there is any other information you would like about the symptoms please let me know.

I'd save that if I were you. It could be worth a few quid hanging on the wall of an art gallery. :)

Hi John,

It's a known effect, caused by having a transition zone too gentle. Looking at your screenshot the difference in radius is only 15.09mm (about 1%) in a length of about a metre.

Almost certainly you have a transition curve there which could be replaced with a fixed radius with very little change elsewhere.

Or alternatively try changing one or other of the radii a fraction, or shortening the transition zone.

p.s. it is not related to 218d, it has been in Templot from the beginning. But much worse on Intel processors than AMD.

cheers,

Martin.

Wow, never expected a response at this early hour and so soon after my posting!

Many thanks, Martin, I will try to make the adjustments necessary to prevent a recurrence of this.  Possibly involving that Max Spiral chap being 'spoken to', if necessary.
