Change Resolution Of Form Based On Screen Resolution

Jan 10, 2011

I have a very high screen resolution on my laptop: 1400x1050.My colleague tried it out on his laptop (which had lesser resolution), and the application did not fit on his laptop. The buttons were dragging out of the screen space.So, I want my application to automatically resize/adjust based upon the screen resolution.I don't want to use Maximized screen option and don't want to change user's pc settings.Unfortunatly I am not using Table Layout panel.

VS 2008 - Setting Form Sizes According To User Screen Resolution

Mar 17, 2011

I'm setting form sizes according to user screen resolution and I think I need design no smaller than 1024 x 768 these days. Using the following code I set my first form and use Anchor settings to resize and maintain controls. Does resize affect StartupPosition in other forms and what do you think is the best StartupPosition to Show the next (smaller) forms? I have a feeling I should have created child forms but simply added forms to the project as I needed them. For example, the first code example does not take account of the WIN7 Task Bar.

Dim x As Integer = My.Computer.Screen.Bounds.Width, y = My.Computer.Screen.Bounds.Height
Me.Size = New Size(x, y)

A smaller form loads with the same code slightly varied, but the reduction is not taking account of the screen resolution. Is there a way of reducing by percentage?

Dim x As Integer = My.Computer.Screen.Bounds.Width, y = My.Computer.Screen.Bounds.Height
X = X -100
y = y - 100
Me.Size = New Size(x, y)

Checking And Setting A Screen Resolution?

Mar 4, 2012

I build an application that is designed to work on a screen resolution of at least 1280x1024. So therefore, when my application starts, I would like for it to check the current screen resolution, if the screen resolution is not what I specify, then a message will ask whether the user wants to change it, if he clicks yes, then the screen resolution will be set to 1280x1024 and then it will reset to the original when the application closes. However, if the desired screen resolution is not available, then an error message will pop up.

Max Form Size Changes With Screen Resolution

Sep 1, 2009

Wondering if there was a way around the seemingly nonsensical editor changing of the maximum size form you can edit/create to some value approaching the screen resolution you are working on. This is a P.I.T.A. as I often edit pages on a laptop with a smaller max resolution than the monitors I typically do layouts for.Any way to by pass this to let me edit larger screen sizes on my laptop?

I know I can find the screen resolution of the Primary screen easily, but I want to find the resolution of the screen that my form is currently sitting in (this is not the same on my setup I have three screens with two different resolutions)the form could span more than one screen so I would be happy with finding the screen that contains the most area of the form/the top left corner.Is there a simple way to do this? I can enumerate the screens, but then working out where my form is sitting within this is tricky:[code]

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.

Made A Mistake In Design My Form E.G Screen Resolution

Aug 2, 2011

I have designed a complaints form for my work (free of charge just for my cv). I designed the form for the resolution 1280 x 1024. My problem is when a user with a smaller resolution say 800 x 600 uses it. The form will be out of sync with the screen as shown below (tested on my on computer). So I am wondering is there a way to test the screen size of the users computer then readjust the size of my controls according to the size of the screen. By the way all of my controls are anchored so that they stay in the same place.

Sizing The Form Based On Screen Resolution (1024x768, 1280x1024, Etc)?

Mar 25, 2011

I designed my form on my machine running 1282x1024.  It works fine.  I installed it on a client machine running 1024x768 and the form goes off the bottom edge of the screen.  I set autoscale on the form to none, font, dpi, and inherited, changed my screen resolution and ran the program.  It always looks the same, off the bottom os the screen.  I tried Autoscroll on with no effect. 

My reading of the documentation seems to indicate these two items are more for the system font size and the screen's dpi setting, not the screen resolution but I can't find anything else to work with. How do I make the form and everything on it change size based on the screen resolution?

Changing Screen Resolution With VB 2005?

Mar 25, 2006

I'm having a difficult time converting a Windows API call that works fine in VB6 to run in VB 2005 (Windows XP with SP2 in both cases).  I reduced the problem code down to its core which is below. I'm trying to change the screen resolution with the ChangeDisplaySettingsEx call; the idea is that on entering the program it shifts to high resolution and at the end it restores the original settings. I left the restore part out because I get the same error. Which is "An invalid parameter was passed in.This can include an invalid flag or combination of flags."  I'm trying to use exactly the same parameters, but somewhere in the conversion process from VB6 a fatal change crept in.  My guess is that it's either in the ByRef/ByVal or Short/Integer/Long alternatives, or in the conversion of the Devmode structure which included fixed-length strings (OK in VB6 but not allowed in VB.NET). But all my fiddling so far has not produced a solution.  I got the same error code back in VB6 when I tried to set a display frequency that was not supported at the resolution I requested, but even leaving the values unmodified (in effect setting them to what they are now, with no change) gives the same error. Any ideas? So far as I can tell, there is no alternative to the API to accomplish this goal; would be interested to know if I missed it.

Screen Resolution Doesn't Fit .NET Application

Aug 12, 2010

Basically, we already had a software working in 1024x768 environment. The program however, have a lot of custom controls and forms that cause problem when users run it in a smaller screen resolution (e.g. 800x600).I had tried change the size of the forms, set auto scrolling, Klik.SizeLibNet3 and etc. All of them has too much work involved or can't achieve best result.Is there any way which I can remain the size of my program (include all the forms) and have a container with scrolling to place my program inside? Or is there any other ways that I doesn't need to modify much on my application?
