how can i load my form to be
a) full screen and filling all the corners,(dead center)
by that i mean i dont have to move it up and left to fill

the screen, and no part is on the far right past the screen.

b) load my normal form, (size is smaller than the full

screen) dead center.

c) can i load it like this when i debug?

Hi jxharding,

Private Sub Form_Load()
'set the startup position to center screen in form properties
Me.Width = Screen.Width
Me.Height = Screen.Height
End Sub



Cheers!

also you might want to set the windowstate to maximized in form properties

If you use R_Rajesh's method, then add:

Me.Top = 1
Me.Left = 1

To place your form where it is supposed to be.

do you even need code for that? just change (in the properties for the form) WindowState to Maximized, BorderStyle to None, and Startup in the center of the screen
