Hi,

I found a weird problem when starting my Ribbon app, and reproduced it in the RibbonDemo project of System.Windows.Forms.Ribbon35.sln: the screen is distorted after executing the following code:

BitmapDecoder decoder = BitmapDecoder.Create(streamOriginal, createOptions, BitmapCacheOption.None);

This is the screenshot where "Return;" is inserted before the above code, everything is OK, especially the "START" tab name:

But after moving the "Return;" one line below to include the BitmapDecoder line, the screen becomes:

Everything in the UI become much smaller and what's even worse is the "START" has been changed to "STA...".

BTW, the "Screen.PrimaryScreen.WorkingArea.Size" returns the correct 1600x860 on a screen with the highest resolution of 1600x900, but returns the following wrong values on a screen with the highest resolution of 1920x1080:

Adjust screen resolution to 1280x720 -> Screen.PrimaryScreen.WorkingArea.Size returns 1280x682

1024x768 -> 1024x730

1600x900 ->1280x675

1680x1050 -> 1344x795

1920x1080 -> 1280x683

And I have verified that after the screen is distorted, the maximized window size can only be the value of Screen.PrimaryScreen.WorkingArea.Size instead of the adjusted screen resolution.

BTW, this is found on a dell tablet with 1920x1080 touch screen running Windows 8.1. No such kind of problems on other Windows 8.1 latops/PCs with screen resolution of 1600x900 and lower.

Please let me know if you need any more information.

Thanks,
Developer
