We developed an Intranet/Internet Application using VB 6.0, in which all the Screens have been developed as Active X Controls, these Active X Controls get downloaded on the user's machine for the first time whenever user accesses a particular screen.
Now, we have run into Screen Resolution Issues as different users use Screen Resolutions ranging from
640 X 480 to 1600 X 1200. We used 1024 X 768 Resolution while designing all the screens...and that was a mistake...!
I did try using Sizer Controls from Component One, as well as similar stuff from other vendors too - but none of them work in a proper fashion to resize (height, width, top, left, font, etc) all the controls present in a screen.
Our Screen layouts are in following manner:-
1. User Control (Primary Container)
1.1 SSTab Control (Secondary Container)
1.1.1 Frame (Tertiary Container)
188.8.131.52 Text Boxes, Labels, Drop Downs, Grids, etc
I am looking forward to some universal solution so that once implemented our application works in almost all the supported Screen Resoltuions.
If you have handled any such scenario in ur projects, do let me know. Even smaller guidelines will be quite helpful.
thanx for your time,
