Windows Forms - Full Screen Anchor Problems

P: n/a


We have an application running that uses FULL SCREEN ANCHORING in Windows
Forms. The application runs fine on all of our desktops and some laptops.

We are having problems with certain Dell laptops using an Nvidia Go graphics
driver (multi screen). When the app goes full screen - .NET does not detect
the right and bottom boundary of the screen - therefore all of the buttons
etc. that are anchored to either the right and/or the bottom of the screen
are gone (i.e. the form just expands off to the right and bottom of the

We have tried every conceivable option:
1) display settings
2) installing new drivers
3) different screen resolutions
4) disabling/enabling multi screen modes
5) hooking it up to an external monitor
6) etc. etc. etc

Has anyone else run into this problem? Is there a way I can trick .NET
anchoring into realizing that there is a right and bottom border so the
controls on the form render properly?

Thanks in advance for your help!
