You would use:
            int screen_width = Screen.PrimaryScreen.Bounds.Width;
            int screen_height = Screen.PrimaryScreen.Bounds.Height;

Open in new window

Why not just  this.width and this.height as anonymous calls to the application. It's one the ways I use to dynamically change the shape/size of my applications or controls.

This will authomatically inherit your main windows methods. So you can define them like so
this.Height = 220;
this.Width = 220;

Simple enough or grab the values.

Double saveHeight = this.Height;
