The Lounge is rated Safe For Work. If you're about to post something inappropriate for a shared office environment, then don't post it. No ads, no abuse, and no programming questions. Trolling, (political, climate, religious or whatever) will result in your account being removed.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen.
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
Suddenly I need to care how many "em"s high text in an <h1> tag (and <hN>) needs to be.
I feel like I just stepped off the edge of the earth. Or maybe stumbled on a path wherein if I follow it at the end there's some guy named Ted who holds the keys to the kingdom - all of this arcana that nobody cares about anymore because everyone just uses webkit.
It's always a nice day for mild to moderate insanity.
And think of it this way: if you kill all the psychiatrists, are you no longer crazy?

I would but it's kind of critical to what I'm doing right now, because how far I read through the document directly corresponds to what can fit on the screen vertically, and that depends on what fits horizontally.
I mean, I guess I can kind of punt this one case if that's what you mean, but it's one of those situations where not making a decision is itself making a decision.
So like, the edges of the word extend of the sides of the page? I'm not sure I can get away with that, since it's for an e-reader, although I wonder if they wouldn't put invisible unicode syllable breaks in long words. I wouldn't want want count on it. Hmmmm.
I don't have the space for a dictionary. I just don't. I'm sweating 30kB here 30kB there for my state tables, and then I have 250kB for my default fonts, which i actually have zipped, and then embedded the compressed result into my code as a C array.
Anyone here working on a desktop application using the new WinUI API?
I'm going to be starting a new personal project and I'm considering all of the available UX platforms. I'd like to be able to eventually publish this project as a commercial app, so I want to choose a UI platform that is relevant and modern-looking. I haven't yet delved into the WinUI and I'm wondering if it's worth the effort.

"Modern looking"? As opposed to "accesible", recognizable and configurable?
Comctls32 always worked. WinForms.
That UI is recognizable, exists in multiple platforms and is cheap to maintain.
