You want the GetSystemMetric s function from the pywin32
packge:

<code>
from win32api import GetSystemMetric s
print "width =", GetSystemMetric s (0)
print "height =",GetSystemMet rics (1)

</code>

Please think about the fact that people sometimes now have 2 and even
3 monitors. Don't do anything with this that would stretch your
application across all 2 (or 3) monitors. I think screensize isn't
going to give you enough information to automatically size or
position a window.

Every approach has some fatal flaw as far as I have been...
