I've been developing web apps using adaptive and responsive design techniques. This where the app changes to subtle differences in screen sizes and if the layout starts to break down then the elements are rearranged to provide a great user experience.

I need to do something similar with a winforms/wpf windows app. Can't design for one resolution anymore. How can I do something similar with windows apps?

Did you already attempt layout managers in winforms?

WPF: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms745058.aspx
WinForms: http://www.drdobbs.com/windows/windows-forms-layout-managers/184405892
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.flowlayoutpanel.aspx

I also tested some layout managers on windows mobile. These will work with the full framework too, as Compact Framework (Windows Mobile) is a subset of the FF.

I did not that much search now, but I am sure that there are many layout managers available in the wild.
