Vb.net program window size

When opening a dialog or program in vb.net is it possible to have the screen maximize to the screen resolution (1024x768, 800x600, etc) automatically? if so, how?

however you're creating the window, you can usually just set .Width and .Height. this is how i do a similar thing for an IE window:

Dim ie
Set ie=createobject("internetexplorer.application")
With ie
    .navigate "about:blank"
    Do Until .readyState=4
     WScript.Sleep 10
    Loop
    .toolbar=0
    .statusbar=0
    .Top=0
    .Left=0
    .Width=ie.document.parentwindow.screen.availWidth
    .Height=ie.document.parentwindow.screen.availHeight
    .navigate "http://cachetweb"
    .visible=true
End With

Yes...at design-time, in the IDE, set the WindowState() property to Maximized.

Done.

two ways:
(Maximize the screen)

dim dlg as new <yourformname>
    dlg.WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized
dlg.showdialog ....

or to make it not maximised but to change the size to the size of the screen:

dlg.windowstate = formwindowstate.normal
 dlg.Size = Screen.PrimaryScreen.Bounds.Size

(although I am not sure why you would want to do the latter!
