VS 2008 Can VB Automatically Adjust For Different Screen Resolutions

Aug 14, 2010

I have a program which draws a U.S. map on the screen. This display looks great on my wide-screen (16:9) monitor, but it looks a little stretched horizontally on my wife's standard (4:3) monitor. Is there some way I can tell VB to automatically adjust the picture when a standard resolution is being used?

If not, am I correct in thinking that standard definition monitors are going the way of the dinosaur, much like is happening with TV's, and in the future we'll be seeing more and more wide-screen monitors.

VS 2010 - Writing For Different Screen Resolutions

Jan 14, 2012

I'm writing a piece of software at the moment which will require a form be full screen at all times. However, I am slightly plagued by the fact that my users will have varying screen resolutions. This makes placing controls etc very difficult. Any good techniques / tips to ensure that control layout looks consistent despite the screen resolution when an application is full screen. I'd like to try to avoid having to programmatically re-size and move controls based on screen res as this is a pain in the royal backside.

VS 2008 Detect Server/Domain - Adjust Settings?

Jan 31, 2012

My application communicates with DB's, images, etc. which are located on our company server/domain.

In real-world use, the app is used only by users on this server/domain. I have connection strings and various other settings which point to the sever for the user. While I'm developing/testing, I may or may not be connected/authenticated to the server/domain. There are many times when I am not.

Currently, I manually change each setting to point to a local address containing copies of needed items when I'm not on the server/domain.My goal is to develop a method to automatically determine whether that domain is available. If not, adjust settings as needed in code. This is for my benefit, while developing.

I'm fishing for various methods/techniques people have developed or use to accomplish this.

VS 2008 Screen.GetWorkingArea And PointToScreen - Dual Screen ?

Mar 28, 2009

I have a button btnRegEx that when pressed shows a ContextMenuStrip, similar to the '>' button in the Find/Replace dialog in Visual Studio when you are using Regular Expressions. I have a ContextMenuStrip cms which I show using its Show(x,y) method.

At first I was simply setting x and y (the location of the ContextMenuStrip) to some point next to the button, but I noticed that when the button is close to the edge of the screen it goes off screen. I wanted to prevent that so I built some logic into the x-y calculation. When the ContextMenuStrip width is larger than the 'remaining space left' I simply show it more to the left. Same for its Height of course. I am using the Screen.GetWorkingArea(point) method to determine the 'remaining space left'. As I understand it, it returns the working area closest to the point you specify (to which I pass the button's location).

As long as I stay on my first monitor, it is all working perfectly fine. The problem occurs when I move the form to my second monitor. The contextmenustrip is still showing on the first monitor for some reason...

Here is the code I am using:

vb.net Private Sub btnRegEx_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnRegEx.Click
Dim p As Point = PointToScreen(New Point(btnRegEx.Left, btnRegEx.Top))
  Dim x, y As Integer


I have noticed that when I click the button when the form is on the second monitor, the buttons location (p) is calculated with the first monitor's top-left corner as (0,0), even though it is on the second monitor. This way, the GetWorkingArea function returns something like 1280, while the buttons x-location is something like 1700... So, how do I get the buttons coordinate relative to the actual screen it is on, rather than the entire dual monitor screens as a whole?

Screen Blanks After 1 Min Of Processing (of Excel File) / Refresh Or Freeze Screen To Avoid Blank Screen?

Jun 29, 2011

BTW this issue occurs in any MS office program when the VB.Net (or even VBA) is processing information.Example:  In Excel, a worksheet is displayed on the screen.  I start either, a VB.Net or VBA procedure and within 30 seconds the Excel worksheet (previously displayed) blanks out.  In both VB.Net and VBA,ScreenUpdating = False.  My expectation is that the previously displayed screen would stay static as if I left my desk to get a cup of coffee; came back and the same ole Excel worksheet was still there?Of course, setting VBA Screen Updating = False accomplishes two goals: 1) speeds up processing and 2) saves the user from seeing unnecessary "garbage-processing" steps.Why does VBA or VB.Net ScreenUpdating = False not freeze the screen at the time of its invoking?

Keep Form Sizes The Same In Different Resolutions?

I have written a VB .NET 2010 application which displays a "you have new mail" window/form with an OK button that closes the form.

Some users have received new PCs with dual-monitors and the OK button is no longer visible on the form - it's at the bottom but off-form.I guess that this is related to a different screen resolution and not the dual-monitor setup itself.how to make my forms auto-resize?

Format The Form - Making It Appear The Same For All Resolutions

Jan 17, 2010

Firstly sorry if this has already been covered, though I am trying to find out if there is a way that I could make all objects on a form appear in the same area no matter what the resolution of the screen is? e.g. I have a group box located down the bottom right for a 1024x768 screen resolution but when I view it on my widescreen laptop it isn't right down the bottom right where I want it. Is there a way this can be done? I'm assuming i could check the system properties to tell me what the resolution is and if it's widescreen then change the location of the object.

VS 2010 User Interface - Particularly Dealing With Different Resolutions

Oct 9, 2011

I am working on a sports management game and have already received some terrific help here with some XNA stuff. I now need some help for the user interface though. This game is very menu-centric, with loads of stats and tables and such. It is therefore paramount to get it right!

So far I have been doing all of the work on my 24" monitor at 1920x1080. Whilst the form is 1920x1080, the menu fits within a 1280x1024 top left region of the form. When I run the game on my other computer, which has a 19" monitor at 1280x1024, I was expecting a large chunk of the form to be cut off but the menu to be all visible. Well, it is all visible but things screw up. Different controls will overlap and such. I'm using Krypton Components for most of the UI and some of the text boxes seem to shrink vertically so you can only see less than half of the text. I have no idea why, they won't all do it.
