I understand ToolbarsManager isn't listed as a supported control for DPI scaling (https://www.infragistics.com/help/winforms/dpi-scaling-support), but is there something I can do to manually force a refresh? I do handle an event where the DPI changes, so if I could somehow force the manager to reinitialize the drawing of its toolbars, that'd be great.
(Even tools that drop-down at runtime, such as context menus, seem to draw at whatever the size at startup was.)
Thank you for contacting Infragistics. Unfortunately no, forcing a redraw will result in the same way. Adding support for the toolbars manager is considered to be a new product idea.

The UltraToolbarsManager is quite complex and, yes, a lot has to get added to make high DPI work as expected.
Please make sure you your idea you submitted also mentions high dpi support for the toolbars manager. Thanks again.
sorry, I had weird issues writing a reply. Let me try again.
First, here's my submitted idea: https://www.infragistics.com/community/ideas/i/ultimate-ui-for-windows-forms/dpi-awareness-for-toolbarsmanager (it's somewhat related to the much broader https://www.infragistics.com/community/ideas/i/ultimate-ui-for-windows-forms/dpi-awareness-for-all-infragistics-controls).
Second, as a note, it would already be quite helpful simply for the font size to scale appropriately, even if it makes the image layout less than ideal. I've implemented this manually for now, but would prefer to switch to a (far more efficient, I'm sure) official implementation.
