Display in different resolution

I would like my application to look good in resolution higher then 800x600 (which is what I develop in).

I am using anchors (Delphi 4) which helps a lot. My only problem is one of my screen has 4 big buttons in the middle. If I just move them to the center the screen looks empty. How can I change the size/font of the buttons to accomodate new resolutions ? I can think of how to do it the hard way but I suspect there might be a better way.

hi yvesmail,

the form has a property scaled.
Set it to true and all controlls in the Form should be scaled depents of the resolution.


But i have not tested.

Try using on FormCreate
ChangeScale(x, 100) where x is the percentage that you would like to scale to. ie if you create in 800x600 and want it to display in higher resolution that is say 40% greater then
ChangeScale(140, 100);
(ie 140%)
You could write code like

if Screen Width > 800 then
 ChangeScale(140, 100);

Obviously you will have to work out percentage yourself.

Or you could use scaleby one changes only the form the other changes components too.

Hope this helps

Chris :)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

It turns out all I need is what xpher proposed. I added the following line and it works great. Thank you Viktor for your component but it looks like I won't need it.
