Just spent some hours today tracking down what I felt was a really odd and unexpected error that turned out to be really simple.
I made a webpage that contained a chart, so far no problem.
But when I moved the code over to the server the chart titles turned out smaller than on my devmachine.
So identical code rendered as images turned out having different size of the text on two machines that I thought had the same settings. D'Oh! | :doh:

Well, to the story belong that I got a new devmachine last week. It's a 14" laptop with 1920x1080 resolution (and a ridiculously fast harddrive compared to my old machine), so the clever people at Dell thought that as you obviously don't buy high resolution to get more real estate, had set the default DPI at 120 instead of 96.
So I immediately set it down to 96DPI and thought no more of it. Problem was just that the IIS Worker Process uses a separate account that still had the default 120 DPI setting. And the rendering of text uses that default setting on the Worker Process Account rather than the setting on my account

So whose fault is this?
Mine for not setting the font size in pixels instead of points?
Or Dells for having a stupid default setting?
Perhaps Devexpress for using a local environment setting for something that should have a standard translation in the Control?

Your call. Whose fault is it?

But more important, how should something like DPI be handled on the net? It shouldn't be set at the server, but rather use the setting from the client, or?
/Rant over.
Wrong is evil and must be defeated.
