Resize Form / Controls According To Resolution?

Nov 23, 2009

I was an idiot and designed my VB app on a 17inch monitor in a 1280X1024 resolution completely forgetting about what it would like on another machine. This might be a long shot, but is there an easy way to get the resolution of the users monitor and re-size the controls and form accordingly?

Scaling Form Controls According To Screen Resolution

Dec 2, 2011

I am trying to write program in vb 2010 that is independent of screen resolution. I am designing the program in 1920*1080 and when I change the resolution to e.g. 800*600 everything blows up and the program won't fit the screen. I have tried three different approaches:

loop through all controls and scale their position and dimensions
Friend Sub ResizeControl(ByRef ctl As Control)
'---------------------------- GET SCALES -------------------------
Dim DesignScreenWidth As Integer = 1920
Dim DesignScreenHeight As Integer = 1080
[Code] .....

None of these methods has worked for me. One thing I figured out was that my main form is larger than 800*600 pixels so when I run the designer in 800*600 resolution VS cut down the with to 812px so my calculations of with and thus scaling ratio becomes wrong. This error goes applies for all three methods.

Resize All The Controls On The Form?

Mar 2, 2012

I have a program that has a TabControl on it. There is code to resize all the controls on the form when the window is resized, regardless of what tab is selected in the TabControl. My issue is that the form will only resize the controls on the selected tab. So if the window is maximized, for example, it will resize the controls on the selected tab, but if the user changes tabs, the new tab will still have the original, non-maximized sizes on it. This works the same with un-maximizing the form, the controls on other tabs will remain the size they are supposed to be when the form is maximized. Here's some example pseudo-code to give you an idea. Assume button1 is on tab1 and button2 is on tab 2.

sub form_resize()
button1.width = x
button2.width = x2
button1.height = y
button2.height = y2
end sub

So the code is supposed to resize all controls regardless of the tab. But if tab 1 is selected it will visually resize button1 but it wont resize button2. To counter this, I simply made the form resize by 1 pixel and then move back to the original size when the user changes tabs. BUT this wont work for maximizing/un-maximizing the form. I tried telling it to detect window state on tab select so if the form is maximized, it will un-maximize it, perform the resize, and re-maximize the form but this doesnt seem to work.

automate this somehow so that regardless of selected tab or window state, all controls will be resized to the proper, current form size?

Making Controls Resize With The MDI Child Form

Jan 23, 2011

Does anyone know how to make the controls on an MDI Child form resize along with the form itself? I inherited a project from another developer and I was asked specifically to make the form resize. With advice I received on this forum I now have the form resizing as expected. It will minimize, restore and maximize as well as resize with the mouse pointer.

The problem is that when I increase the size of the form all I get is more blank space on the screen. The controls to do change at all. Although I thin this is normal behavior for a Windows form my bosses all seem to think that the controls resize on every other widows for they see. I wondered if anyone had successfully accomplished this. I was already advised to write a FormResize handling subroutine and this unfortunately did not work.

VS 2010 - Form Resize And Resizing Controls

Mar 20, 2011

Where is the best place to resize a control on a form when a form is resized?....I'm currently using the Form1_SizeChanged event and seems to work ok. Also is there any need to check in the forms resize event if the form is in a minimized state before resizing controls?.,.. in VB6 if you try to resize a control when the form is minimized you get an error, but I don't see that happening in BV10 Form1_SizeChanged event, does VB10 automatically ignore resizing controls when a form is minimized or something?

VS 2008 Form And Controls Resize Using Anchor/Dock

Mar 7, 2010

From this forum I saw some discussions about form/controls resizing issue with different resolution screen setting. Most suggestions are using Anchor/Dock. My application's form has 10 group boxes and some buttons. In each group box there are 5 Text boxes and other more controls. I tried anchor and dock but couldn't make it work. My questions are -

1, How to re-size form and all individual controls as well?

2, If anchor/Dock are suggested, do i have to use both of them or just one? it seems to me there is no big difference between them.

Winforms :: Why Changing Form Font Resize Some Controls

Feb 15, 2011

All my forms inherits from one base form where we handle background paint and set standard properties. Recently, I think of cheching if the app is running on Vista or Later to use Segoe UI font, and I added this. The problem is than inherited forms changed sizes and their inner controls changed also... even PictureBoxes! The controls and forms seems to be thinner (in width), so square picturebox became vertical rectangules!

Forms :: Resize Form And All Controls In Proportion To Their Startup Size / Location

Jan 5, 2012

I have been searching for a solution to this but I can't find one. I have played with the anchor and dock properties but they are not doing what I want, so here goes... I would like to place and size all of my controls on my form and then when the form is re-sized during run time (different resolutions, full screen/windowed, etc), have everything just scale up or down accordingly. Anchoring the controls to all four sides of my form re-sizes the control properly but it doesn't move it's location in sync with the other control's size next to it, they begin to overlap each other. Am I going to have to code my own scaling code for each control in my program?

Interface And Graphics :: Dock Or Anchor Controls So That They Resize Themselves Accordingly When Form Is Resized

Feb 12, 2011

we all know how to dock or anchor controls so that they resize themselves accordingly when a form is resized. It works fine till we have rows of controls on left and right size of the form. But what if have three columns (Columns as in visual sense. I'm not talking about any column control containing other controls) of controls? For example a form having a bunch of controls in the left side, a bunch in the middle and a bunch in the right. There may be a few more bunches in the middle. Now while resizing the form, I want the controls to resize accordingly as well as change their positions to make space for the previous bunch of controls that are resizing.I mean, while the user increases the form size horizontally, the controls of the second bunch should resize and at the same time they should move right because the controls of the first bunch are increasing horizontally too. When the user decreases the form size horizontally the same thing should occur in the reverse order.I can manage it somehow using nested splitcontainers but that's too cumbersome. I would like to know if there's some better way to achieve it, like setting some property etc.?
