Problems with Picture as background in VB6 form
Posted on 2003-10-31
I am trying to use a picture created using MS Paint (BMP) as background for the form. I noticed difference, when I run the same app on laptop and PC. If I size the form for the size of bitmap picture on laptop, it looks perfect on the laptop, but when I run the same app on a desktop, the picture looks streteched and as wll as clipped, so total picture is not shown as it is bigger than form size. I tried all the resolutions on the Desktop, the effect is same.
The otherway also it is same. If I design / compile the form on the PC to the size of bitmap it looks perfect on Desktop, but when I run on laptop, it looks shrunk and picture background is smaller than the form size.
what am I missing here? What things I need to consider when using bitmap / jpeg / gif picture as background in the forms, and need to run the application on laptops as well as desktops.
Help is appreciated.
