Hi.

I want my application to find out the Width and Height og the screen. I look a Win95 function up in the online help called GetScreenWidth (-Height), but how do I get to use it? I cant just write

var
  In1 : Integer;
begin
  In1 := GetScreenWidth;
..
..

How do I get to use these Win95 functions?

Thanx - Steff.

How about using the GetSystemMetrics function:

var
  ScrHeight, ScrWidth: integer;
begin
  ..
  ScrWidth := GetSystemMetrics(SM_CXSCREEN);
  ScrHeight := GetSystemMetrics(SM_CYSCREEN);
  ..
end;

See the help for more info
