Forms are developed under resolution 1400x1050. Now the buttons at the bottom of the forms cannot be displayed under 1024x768 even in the VB.net design area. Can vertical and horizontal bar solove it or any other suggestions? I am a new user to VB and please show me how in detail.

Thanks in advance!

Make your forms smaller.

There are more than 10 forms and each of of has many buttons, text boxes, and lables. In fact, I tried to make the form size smaller by changing its property but it still doesn't work. I mean the buttons at the bottom still cannot be displayed.

When you make a form smaller...you need to re-adjust all of the labels and buttons so they fit on the new form size...if you just shrink an existing form...any buttons that are outside of the form boundries will be clipped and will not be visible...they do not reposition themselves as you change the form properties...I would never design a form larger then 1024x768 for production since very few people run this resolution.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

>> Can vertical and horizontal bar solove it...?

I agree with the other two posts in that you shouldn't design your forms bigger than 1024x768 but...

...if you need a quick and dirty way to solve the problem just set the AutoScroll propety of your form to True.

Scrollbars will appear that will allow the user to scroll the form to get to the controls that are outside the visible area of the form.

You can anchor your buttons to the bottom. Just change the buttons property Anchor to Bottom. Then when the form is resized the buttons will always stay the same distance from the bottom of the form.

Hope this helps.
Good luck

You can also set the Anchor to Bottom and Right if you want the button to stay the same distance from the bottom and right side of the form.
