The function below returns "Compile error: Method or data member not found."  The selected code is ".X2".  

I have defined the global variable and types as follows:

Global SCREEN_SIZE As String                

Type RECT
    X1 As Integer
    Y1 As Integer
    X2 As Integer
    Y2 As Integer
End Type


Function GetScreenResolution()

Dim R As Rectangle
Dim hwnd As Integer
Dim retval As Integer

    hwnd = GetDesktopWindow()
    retval = GetWindowRect(hwnd, R)
    SCREEN_SIZE = (R.X2 - R.X1) & "x" & (R.Y2 - R.Y1)
   
End Function



What do I need to check in my references to make this work?

mgrattan,

I changed Rectangle to RECT, and then got this error - Compile error: ByRef argument type mismatch.
The "R" is highlighted in "retval = GetWindowRect(hwnd, R)".

I seem to recall that the X'es in RECT should be Long.
So try to:


Type RECT
   x1 As Long
   y1 As Long
   x2 As Long
   y2 As Long
End Type


Also:

   Dim R As RECT
   Dim hWnd As Long
   Dim RetVal As Long

(this is NOT tested)

In 16-bit VB/VBA it was Integer, in 32-bit versions it needs to be Long.
