Hi,

I've added some controls to the top of a sheet in an Excel file. The problem I'm having is that the text on, say a label, is blurry or fuzzy. It almost looks like when smoothing is being applied but actually makes it worse. I've tried various fonts and sizes and that doesn't matter. The rest of the text on the sheet looks fine. Has anyone seen this before, and hopefully knows what's happening

I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks.

Hi Art,

Does it refer to design time or during runtime If it the first case then I would guess it's per default. I got the same scenario during design time.

Hi Dennis,

It happens during design time when I put a label on the sheet. If I then run it, it still looks fuzzy when running. I haven't tried just popping a label on a sheet during run time, so I don't know if that will help. For what it's worth, I abandoned this and decided to put my controls on the Actions Pane instead. I think it works better there anyway.

Art,

OK but just to satify my curiosity would be possible for You to send me a screenshot of it during runtime

Thanks in advance.

Hi Dennis,

I was wrong. The funny thing is, when I run the program, the screen intially shows up with the label still fuzzy. However if I'm patient (which I'm often not), in a few seconds it clears up. Weird. I'm glad you asked the question -- if I wasn't trying to capture screenshots I wouldn't have seen it.

Hi Art

the reason for this is that, at design time and until the VSTO customizations finish loading, all you see is a graphical representation of the control, rather than the control itself. The graphical representation doesn't render very well, is all :-) (which helps you recognize if there's a problem loading the customization at run-time)

Cindy,

Thanks for clearing that up for me. I think I spent way too much time trying various alternatives!
