How can i make .net windows/forms independent of screen resolution.

I created a windows-form and on some screen-resolution it was showing everything perfectly and on other screen resolutions/monitor sizes it could not show everything. I know the temporary solution is adding scroll bars to your form, but is that the only way to work with windows forms in .NET

pl guide thanks

easy way
------------
Put all the controls inside of a panel control
set the panel control dock property to fill
set the panel control autoscroll property to true.

hard way
------------
use the resize event to resize and move controls based on form size.

more versitle easy way.
------------------------------
use a combination of splitter and panel controls to layout your form with movable areas and auto scrollbars.  then use the resize event to resize these objects based on form size.
