Sizing forms during runtime when screen resolution is different from one used during designing.
Posted on 1998-02-11
Back again for some expert advice and possible a small example of how to fix the following problem..
How can I during runtime handle the change of screen resolution and fontsize when it changes from what I designed the application and still maintain approximately the same size of the form
I have tried the borland Ti2861 Technical Information (Form display with different resolutions) but when I compile the application and then run it under a different resolution the following happens:
(800 by 600 Large Font) to (640 by 480 Small Font) the form blows up to fill the whole screen and all components are distorted..
Or when I go from (800 by 600 Large Font) to (800 by 600 Small Font) the form is reduced to 1/2 of it original size.
Help what am I doing wrong or have I totally messed up in my understanding of the borland technical information.
