Hi,
I've got an issue with asp.net pages not looking right.
Web pages work and display lovely on development machine but not on end user.
Is there free tool to simulate how a page will look in different resolutions - the development machine is 1900 x 1400 which isn't likely on end user......
Thanks

I use Firefox and the Web Developer Toolbar.  There is an option there to resize your browser window according to common screen resolutions.

This little freeware app will let you resize any window/app that has focus...the default screen resolutions are in there by default and you can create custom sizes too.

It runs fine for me on XP Pro.  Silly question, but you have to launch the app after you install it.

There should be a little "four way arrow" in your system tray (right click it and select a rez and the focused window will resize), and right clicking on the resize handle (in the lower right) in any window would bring up a context menu that would resize the window.
the only difference between Sizer and the functionality of the Firefox Toolbar resize...is I believe the FF toolbar only works to resize the current FF window whereas size will do any window.
