NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethod Equals

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetHashCode

Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetType

By default, WPF applications are dpi aware, which affects how user interface layout is calculated. However, an application can disable dpi awareness by adding the DisableDpiAwarenessAttribute to the application assembly.

System_CAPS_cautionCaution

It is not recommended that you set this attribute for your application, unless you need all user interface elements of your application to be non-dpi aware.

The following example shows how to disable Dpi awareness for the WPF application by declaring DisableDpiAwarenessAttribute at the assembly level.

// Disable Dpi awareness in the application assembly.
[assembly: System.Windows.Media.DisableDpiAwareness]
' Disable Dpi awareness in the application assembly.
<Assembly: DisableDpiAwareness>
