Ok. You are saying the for resizing the application according to system's resolution. But i want to set the resolution of the application only. I mean, suppose the resolution of the system is 10200X768, and now i want to set the resolution of the application to 800X600 without changing the resolution of the application.

Regards,

As I say it doesn't matter why you decide to change the size of your form, it matters the way you do it and in the mentioned question there are two or three methods that looks great to do it...
in any case I think that you must:
1. look what is the system resolution and change the application resolution ie:
Me.Height = Screen.Height * (ratio you would have)

for instance if you want a form 2/3 of the screen try

Me.Height = Screen.Height * (2 / 3)

2. as telluri said in the mentioned question (if you like this way give the points to him) change the size of your controls

3. move your resized controls to a new position to maintain the overall behaviour of the application.

4. eventually change also font size (Bahnass)

if it fits your needings look at the mentioned question and give the points to Telluri or Bahnass.
