Hi All,

How can I resize my app's window when the app was designed in another screen resolution than the running circumstances?
Is there any chance to detect the screen resolution and
manage the changes in a genle way.

Thanks in advance
Andras

That's what I know. But I want some automatic solution.
When you set the screen width and height the objects what
your form contains doesn't changes their positions. So I have
to set each position. Whaaa, It's difficult.

So any other suggestion?

You could use this code to get the screen resolution:

x,y: integer;
  x := getSystemMetrics(SM_CXSCREEN);
  y := getSystemMetrics(SM_CYSCREEN);


This will fit the form:
  ScaleBy(x, 1024);

Guess that scaled must be set true
you should also resize the
