re-sizability

i have some screens that look fine at 800x600 or 1024,
but on some computers at 640 the graphics arent the
same. Labels dont fit inside boxes, controls spill over, that
sort of thing. I made the forms to fit in a 640 screen and
have made the border single, not sizable and have removed the scroll bars, but still it sometimes doesnt fit right. This is not true of all computers but the program needs to run on as many as possible.

This is a problem that many have.  There are several solutions to the problem including some shareware components that adjust everything on your form to fit.

As a starter, Change 'Scalable' to False for your form.  This will make the form the same number of pixels for all displays.  You might have to make the controls (like edit boxes) a little larger to accomodate all scale sizes.

I also have a paper that discuses this in detail (with soultions) if you would like.  Please post your E-Mail and I will send it to you.

Cheers,
