I want my application to have the same size on every computer that it is installed on, independent on the screen resolution...

How do I do it?
I use Delphi developer 2.0...

Thanx!

If I make an application that just fit the screen when I run on 800X600 -mode, the application tends to be bigger than the screen when I run on 640x480. This makes the application  hardworked since the user have to use the scrollbars...
I just want the application to fit the screen always...

Thanks!

Then you need something which adjust the form proportional to the screen. For this you can find some comonents on the torry pages or on the super delphi page :

http://torry.rimini.com/
http://sunsite.icm.edu.pl/delphi/

But, it isn't that easy to get a satisfactionary result.

If somebody knows better ways than these components, please let me know too about it.
