My application looks great. Unfortunately, when I run it on machines with different resolutions

PC to view my application the same way I developed it? Thanks!

    You might want to test on all system. I have abput 10 computers with all sorts of OS's to test my software on. Every time MS comes out with a new system, it costs me <g>. It does seem (just off-hand, don't hold me to this), that programs developed under XP look better under 98 than programs developed under 98 look on XP. I think 98 just has simpler displays, so less to go wrong.
