I am making my application as resolution indepandant but toolbuttons are not calculated depends on my formula for resolution which is applying for other components

Below is mycode

for idx := 0 to -1 + self.ComponentCount do
  begin
    if Components[idx] is TControl then
    begin
      ctrl := TControl(Components[idx]) ;
      if (ctrl.Name = 'LEADImage1') or (ctrl.Name = 'OutputImage') then  continue;
      ctrl.Top := ctrl.Top * longint(screen.Height) div
                  ScreenHeight;
      ctrl.Height := ctrl.Height  * longint(screen.Height) div
                  ScreenHeight;
      ctrl.Left := ctrl.Left  * longint(screen.Width) div
                  ScreenWidth;
      ctrl.Width := ctrl.Width * longint(screen.Width) div
                  ScreenWidth;
      if GetPropInfo(ClassInfo, 'font')<>nil then
               Font.Size := (GetSystemMetrics(0)  div ScreenWidth)
                           *font.Size;
    end;
  end;

Toolbar button are specific component which don't decide about their size. You have to change button size for TToolBar component, which contains Toolbuttons

You can simply change yours procedure like this:


for idx := 0 to -1 + self.ComponentCount do
  begin
    if Components[idx] is TToolBar then
    begin
      TToolBar(Components[idx]).ButtonHeight := TToolBar(Components[idx]).ButtonHeight  * longint(screen.Height) div
                  ScreenHeight;
      TToolBar(Components[idx]).ButtonWidth := TToolBar(Components[idx]).ButtonWidth * longint(screen.Width) div
                  ScreenWidth;
    end
    else if Components[idx] is TControl then
    begin
      ctrl := TControl(Components[idx]) ;
      if (ctrl.Name = 'LEADImage1') or (ctrl.Name = 'OutputImage') then  continue;
      ctrl.Top := ctrl.Top * longint(screen.Height) div
                  ScreenHeight;
      ctrl.Height := ctrl.Height  * longint(screen.Height) div
                  ScreenHeight;
      ctrl.Left := ctrl.Left  * longint(screen.Width) div
                  ScreenWidth;
      ctrl.Width := ctrl.Width * longint(screen.Width) div
                  ScreenWidth;
      if GetPropInfo(ClassInfo, 'font')<>nil then
               Font.Size := (GetSystemMetrics(0)  div ScreenWidth)
                           *font.Size;
    end;
  end;
