Common Desktop Environment: Style Guide and Certification Checklist


The desktop accommodates three display resolutions: low resolution (640x480), medium resolution (800x600), and high resolution (mega-pixel). The size of the Front Panel and some of the icons change automatically depending on the display resolution. For this reason, your application must provide different sized icons.



Any icons or graphics displayed by your application are designed to be distinguishable on low- (640x480), medium- (800x600), and high- (mega-pixel) resolution displays. Alternatively, your application provides different sized visuals for low-, medium-, and high-resolution displays.
