@PiBoSo: I guess the below made it into MXB beta 11/11b, right ?

Quote* GPB / WRS / KRP / MXB: added support for widescreen user interface

I had some magic in my plugins to map your 0.0-1.0 X coord to full screen width and I was hoping your change would allow me to get rid of that.
But if I just use (0.0, 0.0) for a quad position, it doesn't go to top-left corner of the screen (y is OK, X is off, not fully left).

I have a 21:9 screen if that matters.

What did change exactly ?

The code has been changed to support user interfaces with aspect ratio other than the 4:3 one.
It was then possible to edit the user interface to use the 16:9 ratio.
However, the user interface doesn't dynamically adapt to the screen ratio.

Could it be useful for plugins to receive the screen ratio as a parameter?

Thanks ! But what happens then if you run on a 4:3 screen ?

I'd say yes. At the moment I try to figure it out getting the screen resolution with windows functions (which likely is not the right way all the time).

Even better would probably be if you could provide a couple of functions to map x and y coords from the "UI" space (0..1, but not necessarily covering the whole screen) to the whole screen and viceversa.

No big deal anyway.
