Screen Resolution (Changing)
Ok, there have been numerous posts on the General board about screen resolution... so instead of moving all of them here/combining them, I've just posted this new one.
Screen Resolution, Changing
As a note:
Generally you should code the program to work on 800x600 or 1024x768 (XP default) as a minimum resolution, and then resize the forms/controls if itís larger.
Changing the resolution is useful for games, but can cause problems/irritate users if done without their permission Ė especially if other programs are running or if done for readability. If your program really requires 1024x768, I'd suggest to check it first, then prompt the user if itís ok to change. If you do change the resolution, make sure to reset it once the programís done (even ask the user if itís ok).
Decreasing the resolution so the program looks right shouldn't be done. Resize the controls/forms to make them larger instead.
