I was formely programming applications for PC and now I started programming for Mobile devices. As I work with a lot of different devices I encounter different screen sizes and resolutions on those devices. On pc I handled differen Form sizes with TableLayoutPanel (to adjust the size and shape of controls on Form). On Compact Framework there is no TableLayoutPanel ! Is there some 3rd party substitute? If nobody knows, then I am interested how do you handle the programms visual interface with different screens.

Best regards,

SDK has few samples about it.

If we will go a bit deeper - your application is a full-screen application that receives  notifications from Windows about the size change. So you may react somehow. I think, you will need to write a code that will lay out your controls.
