Jmeter 3.0 display issues in HiDPI screens

Shay Ginsbourg
​Hi,

On page: http://jmeter.apache.org/usermanual/hints_and_tips.html#hidpi

The following text appears:


The HiDPI mode isn't currently support by Java Virtual Machine 7 or 8 on
Linux or Windows, so JMeter with a HiDPI screen can be very hard to see
(little icons and chars). You can improve the JMeter's display on HiDPI
screen by changing some properties:


jmeter.hidpi.mode

set to true to activate a 'pseudo'-hidpi mode allowing to increase size of
some UI elements

jmeter.hidpi.scale.factor

set to 2.0 to scale the size of some UI elements

jmeter.toolbar.icons.size

with these values: 22x22 (default size), 32x32 or 48x48 (Suggested value
for HiDPI)

jmeter.tree.icons.size

with these values: 19x19 (default size), 24x24, 32x32 (Suggested value for
HiDPI) or48x48


​ISSUES:​

1. None of the above actually helps. Is there a better solution available?

2. I posted on QUORA a simple question:

Which Java Virtual Machine supports HiDPI display?


The answers that was giver is as follows:

These are unrelated things, a JVM does not use a display at all, let alone
a high DPI one, if you’re asking about Java UI toolkits, JavaFX supports
high DPI just fine on Windows and Mac.


So is the information on jmeter.apache.org/usermanual right or wrong ?

I copied the entries from bin/jmeter.properties to bin/user.properties, removed the hash in front, started jmeter 3.0 and the icons and toolbars were really big. So it seems to me, that the entries are working.

Can you describe, what you have done?

That is right, the jvm part should be replaced with swing on jdk.

Both ;)
