Parameter Description Example

Returns OK or error.


Sets whether HiDPI handling is enabled.
We can opt-in for your FileMaker installation to let web viewer use proper resolution handling for web content.
You may just call this in your start script and it may take effect after the next restart of FileMaker.

Note for Windows: For Windows this function is only supported in FileMaker Pro when using Internet Explorer as engine behind the Web Viewer, but not when Microsoft Edge/Chrome engine is used. But the functions should still work if with Web Viewers created via plugin using WebView.Create and WebView.CreateWithControl as those still use Internet Explorer.


Enable high resolution aware WebViewer:

MBS( "WebView.SetInternetExplorerHiDPI"; 1 )

Disable high resolution aware WebViewer:

MBS( "WebView.SetInternetExplorerHiDPI"; 0 )
