I have written a delphi app in 640*480 resolution that looks nice also in higher resolutions. When the user chooses to work in 800*600 with large fonts the forms don't look well anymore. When you redesign the forms in 800*600 large fonts, they don't look well in resolutions that don't use large fonts. Does anyone know a good solution to design forms that look good in every resolution and with large and small fonts?

I have created the following procedure to handle that problem:

Procedure LOut(Form : TForm; Label : TLabel; Text : String);
Begin
  With Form.Label Do
     Begin  
       TextHeight:=Canvas.TextHeight(Text);
       TextWidth:=Canvas.Textwidth(Text);
       Caption:=Text;
     End;
End;

This works fine for me, maybe you can use it also??

Take a look at one of those TI's (I think it's Ti2861) and you'll find everything concerning displaying fonts and components with different screen resolutions.
