Application Windows sizing and positioning

I am using MS access 8.0 and want to write a function that will help the forms to be sized irregardless of the windows resolution setup.
ex. If the form is developed in 640 X 480 then it is OK to be used in 800 x 600 but will be smaller. The reverse case would show that form outside the monitor screen size.!!
So according to the resolution all the forms should stretch in size based upon the resolution.
Thanks.

Hi devtha,
I don't know if you're working with MFC, but I suppose so if you post it in this section. Im MFC you can say in the InitInstance of the application class:

// The main window has been initialized, so show and update it.
//
m_pMainWnd->MoveWindow( 0,
                        0,
                        ::GetSystemMetrics(SM_CXSCREEN),
                        ::GetSystemMetrics(SM_CYSCREEN) );
pMainFrame->ShowWindow(m_nCmdShow);
pMainFrame->UpdateWindow();


But if you're working with Visual Basic with Access, you first have to declare the function:

Public Declare Function GetSystemMetrics Lib "user32" Alias "GetSystemMetrics" (ByVal nIndex As Long) As Long

If you resize the window, keep in mind that the controls on the window won't resize. You need an extra function to do that.

Hope this helps.
Melissa

Take a look at the ITCLib free class library at http://devcentral.iftech.com/

The ITCFormManager class can dynamicly move and size controls when the parent dialog is resized.
