P: 1
How can I change the size of the forms in my Windows application when the
screen resolution the user has is higher than the one I developed the
application in? I have a customer that has a screen resolution of 1600x1200
and I developed the application in a PC with 1024x768 resolution. Is it
possible to increase the forms' sizes accordingly?


Thanks.

If the form window state is set to maximized, it will expand to fill the users screen.
Using the anchor/dock properties you should be able to have your controls resize as well.
(I've only been developing on .NET2.0, but as I understand it, there is MORE control of this behavior in newer .NET versions)
