I have forms that need to be resized to utilize a higher screen resolution. Is it possible to resize all fields and controls where they main position/separation all at one time?

My advice is not to re-invent the wheel, especially since it's a bit more complicated than one would first expect:

ShrinkerStretcher

 There is code floating around to do this on your own if you want, but by the time your done fooling around with it, you'll be far past what it would cost you to buy ShrinkerStretcher.
