Title and Description Banner Parameters

Jan 9, 2009 at 6:15 AM

Does anyone know the correct config settings to make the description banner bigger? I want to use some very large fonts as the app is on a 42" LCD.

I have been messing around with the Title Margin parameters but it doesn't seem to do much at all???

Appreciate any assistance!

in the file Generic.xaml look for

<!-- Default style for Vertigo.SlideShow.Controls.SlideDescription -->

and then for

        <RowDefinition Height="30" />
        <RowDefinition Height="30" />

These values control how high the title and description lines are.

I tried changing those parameters but it didn't do anything. Are you sure those are the ones to change?

Maybe it's something I'm forgetting to do when rebuilding the xap file?

sorry: in SlideDescription.cs you also must change the total height of the description in line 55:

Height = 60;

You can see the result here:
