The smallest screen resolution that most people cater for now days is 800 x 600 so if your forms are that size you should be alright.  Alternatley you just make it a minimum requirement to have a monitor running at a higher resolution like 1024 x 768.

When you publish software you will usually list minimum requirements somewhere,  things like minimum processor speed, minimum ram etc.  You can always list screen resolution among these requirements rather than trying to get your application to run or very small resolutions.  One of the packages I am working on at the moment specifies 1024 x 768 as there are simply too many controls to be able to resize correctly any smaller than that.

Thank you for the suggestion.  My application will run on the server most of the time and they tend to have lousy monitors but you suggestion is still good.  thank you.
