Changing font size at runtime

Changing font size at runtime

Changing font size at runtime

We have a fairly old program and we have been asked to add an option for users to customize the font size. Most of our screen sizing and arranging has always been done at run time,so we simply conditionalized it to do all of that based on the font. The issue is for the non-default font size it is taking much longer to open the forms. We have exhausted all optimization options we could find in the code, and are still seeing unacceptable slowness. Does anyone have other suggestions on how to handle this? Ideally we would have 2 separate window definitions with the same fields, and we would load whichever one we want. A second window definition with different fields is not an option because we would have weeks/months of code changes to support the new field equates.
