scaling forms to different resolutions.

I'm using something like this to change my forms regarding the user's resolutions:

  Form9.scaled := true;
  x := getSystemMetrics(SM_CXSCREEN);
  y := getSystemMetrics(SM_CYSCREEN);
  if (x <> ScreenHeight) or (y <> ScreenWidth) then
    Form9.height := Form9.height * x DIV ScreenHeight;
    Form9.width := Form9.width * y DIV ScreenWidth;
    scaleBy(x, ScreenHeight);

It's work very well for normal resoulutions (like 800x600, 1024 x 768 etc). But under resolution in widescreens or something like 960x 600 it doesn't work, cutting some parts of the screen.

Any idea how to solve this?
