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:
set to true to activate a 'pseudo'-hidpi mode allowing to increase size of
some UI elements
set to 2.0 to scale the size of some UI elements
with these values: 22x22 (default size), 32x32 or 48x48 (Suggested value
with these values: 19x19 (default size), 24x24, 32x32 (Suggested value for
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 ?
