WhewnI used to work with eVC++4 I stretched all dialogs so they were 135 x 180 but now I am using VS2005 and this size is much smaller than the PDA screen.

I think you will have to determine your size after you get the screen resolution. There are multiple screen sizes. 320X240 240X320. 240X240

135x180 - does it mean dialog's size in Resource Editor? because obviously there is no difference oir the actual exe whether you use eVC4 or VS2005.

you might use something like that to automate the resizing (assuming you call it in OnInitDialog() ):


int cx = GetSystemMetrics(SM_CXSCREEN);
int cy = GetSystemMetrics(SM_CYSCREEN);
int cyCaption = GetSystemMetrics(SM_CYCAPTION);
SetWindowPos(&wndTop, 0, 0, cx, cy - 2 * cyCaption, SWP_NOMOVE|SWP_NOZORDER);

Open in new window

The common way is to use SHInitDialog.
Please read that: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/266244.
It shows fullscreen and non-fullscreen, dialog and frame.
