screen resolutions

P: n/a
I have a simple application that I am installing on a couple of different
machines here at work. One small problem that I have run into and have not
anticipated (being a "newbie") is sceren resolution. I program forms on my
resolution of 1152 X 864. When I installed this on my supervisors PC which
is 800 X 600 the form extended beyond the bottom of the screen and even
though I set the scroll bars to automatically show, it will not scroll to
the bottom.

Is there something I missed in coding or the properties of the form itself?

Thanks for the help.

I made the same error in a vb program once -
we ended up getting the user a larger monitor so he could use the required
screen resolution.
(he was using lower resolution because of his eyesight) - now he can see ALL
his screens better
your boss will appreciate getting a larger monitor - for his sight

There is a resize code in Gary Cornell's book (VB From the ground up). You
might want to take a look at that. It doesn't work well with SSTAB
controls. If you have a pretty modest form, you might want to consider using
the resize function.
