Description Simon Fraser (smfr) 2012-02-08 01:26:57 PST
Need to implement

See FIXME in MediaQueryEvaluator.cpp:
FIXME: following media features are not implemented: color_index, scan, resolution
Comment 1 Simon Fraser (smfr) 2012-02-08 01:28:11 PST
This should do the right thing when printing too (report printer output resolution).
Comment 2 Simon Fraser (smfr) 2012-02-08 01:43:21 PST
Also need to match what other browsers do when pageScale changes.

If you want a quick initial test, http://meyerweb.com/eric/css/tests/mq-valueless.html includes valueless, iPhone 4S value (I think), and min/max queries.  See test 11.  If not, no harm done.

General comment: It's not clear to me why we would implement the resolution media query, considering how broken it is.

Eric, that isn't the correct iPhone 4S value per the spec, because the CSS dpi unit is "physical pixels per CSS inch" and a CSS inch is 96 CSS pixels. So "resolution: 192dpi" should match on an iPhone 4S.

How does this relate to bug 85262?

That is about a new CSS property based on the resolution of image resources. This is about a media query based on screen resolution.

Should we dupe this to https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99077?

It still need some special handling when printing as smfr pointed out, but maybe that is another bug

According to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=662061 zooming ( and I assume pageScale) should not affect the resolution values.

It currently does in Firefox 16, at least full page zoom, though not text size zoom.

Support for the 'resolution'  media query was added behind ENABLE(RESOLUTION_MEDIA_QUERY) via bug 99077.
Comment 12 Albert Scheiner 2014-12-13 20:26:10 PST
Are there any plans to enable it by default any time soon? Once dppx support lands in IE (it's currently in preview built) all other major browser have added full support.

Comment 13 Chris Rebert 2015-10-05 12:39:13 PDT
MS Edge has shipped this (see http://caniuse.com/#feat=css-media-resolution ), so now only WebKit doesn't support this.
Comment 14 Mattia Astorino 2020-07-23 12:22:19 PDT
This bug was filed 8 years ago, even IE 9 supports this important media query. What happened here? 😕
