Scrolling a form

Hello,

I have a form which runs off the user's screen, but only at resolution 800x600. (I don't really care about 640x480). I need to make this a scrollable form, but only for this resolution (or only when the form runs off the screen) It runs off at the bottom only, and I am centering the form in the middle of the screen. Further complicating things, this form has a picture as a background. I line up various controls (buttons, textboxes, etc.) to areas of the picture, so simply moving all the controls around will not work. I've found code which illustrates how to make a form scrollable and moves all form elements (using a picturebox I believe), but I need code that can detect the user resolution or when a form runs off the screen, and only in that case add a scrollbar to the form.

Any suggestions?

Yo, rite

maybe ya can use the screen object
try this
put this on Form_Load

MsgBox (Screen.Width / Screen.TwipsPerPixelX) & " " & (Screen.Height / Screen.TwipsPerPixelY)

it will show a messageBox with the resolution you are using.

I had no idea this object existed. That is very helpful. Do you know of a way to reposition a window in the center of the user's screen at runtime?

Private Sub Form_Load()
Me.Move (Screen.Width - Me.Width) / 2, (Screen.Height - Me.Height) / 2
End Sub
