How to handling screen resolution?

MamaBob asked
Last Modified: 2010-04-06

I try to adjust my application form size and position to screen resolution, so my form could showed properly.  I want my form still displayed as I designed in form designer, regardless of screen resolution.
I've tried to scale my form using PixelsPerInch property when it's created like this:

procedure TMyForm.FormCreate;
  PixelsPerInch := GetDeviceCaps(Handle, LOGPIXELSY);// I've set scaled property to true at design time;

I think my form was well scaled but it's ugly.  All my component on my form was not scaled as the form was.  I have many component on my form such as: coolbar, listview, label, etc.  My coolbar was cut off, and so all my label and other component still not scaled.
Is my way  correct ? How to solve this problem?
Big thanks to anyone who helps me
