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 2010 Adjust Full Screen Porgram For Different Resolutions?

Oct 26, 2010

I'm trying to make a very simple full screen program I'm going to use to launch Program.

(That copy bar isn't suppose to be there my computer just glitched and I didn't feel like restarting)

I was wondering if there's any easy way to get get everything to adjust to fit fullscreen?

Interface And Graphics :: Get All Supported Screen Resolutions

May 3, 2010

I'm making a shell for a computer system this shell is going to be distributed with lots of different computers.The shell is designed to replace the standard windows look (not important but anyway), and as such, i need a way of allowing the user to change the screen resolution to what their monitors/display adapters can support. I'm looking for a way to call all the supported screen resolutions into a combo box.Preferably with the x and y values as separate variables, but that's not a major thing.

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 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.

Asp.net - Writing An Array As A Comma Separated List To Screen

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?

Forms For Multiple Resolutions?

Jul 24, 2006

How would I go about designing something that will work on many different resolutions? For example, i have my monitor on a very high resolution, and when i work on my projects, the actual controls (buttons, text boxes ,whatnot) are in the top left quarter of my screen, because the program will have to be deployed on 800x600 machines.

Is there anyway to make it so it will stretch and look appropriate on different resolutions?

Get A List Of Supported Resolutions?

Keep Form Sizes The Same In Different Resolutions?

Apr 9, 2012

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? I though this was automatic in VS 2010.

Is this a case of getting the computers resolution when the app starts and alter the size and position of controls?

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 Reading And Writing Files?

Dec 27, 2010

My app has a series of parameters that is to be stored in an external files. Eventhough the "parameter" file could be edited by the end user, I really don't care that much about what the user does to them.

So my two questions are, what is the most effeicent means of reading and writing a file and in what format should the file be in? When I say effeicent I mean, what utilizes the least amount of memory during the process, is fast, and disposable.

Example: XML, Text, something else. StreamReader / StreamWriter or what ever.

VS 2010 - Writing Different Lines To Text File

Jan 30, 2012

I want to create a little program with textboxes in it, that writes the contents of these textboxes to a file. It also needs to write some predefined lines to the files, even on the same line as where the contents of the textbox is.

Heres an example:
The file should look like this when you open it in notepad:
Send t Text from TextBox {Enter}

First I think I would need to do this:
Dim ioFile As New StreamWriter("scripting.ahk")
If I do the above it works.. But how can I write another line where the "Send t" and "{Enter}" gets written automaticly before and after the contents from the Textbox?

Now when I create an object like this

Dim f As New GOODownloadFile("http:\download.com1.exe", "c:Down", "c:Down")

All the values given are correctly saved in the file 1.txt But when I change the download file info afterwatds, like this:

Dim f As New GOODownloadFile("http:\download.com1.exe", "c:Down", "c:Down")


the new value (123456) is not saved. Hence, only the values provided BEFORE the AddDownload are saved, the rest aren't.
I've check my code 100times, and I'm sure everything is fine. I think it may be because of the send-by-value. When I change the values afterwards, the orginal object isn't used.

If System.IO.File.Exists(debugpath) = True Then
Dim Debugwriter As New System.IO.StreamWriter(debugpath, True)


1. Do I have to close and reopen the file each time I want to write to it.

2. In vbscript I would simply open the the file at the start of the script and close at the end is the same possible here.
