Making Form Size Greater Than Screen Size
I trying to print a form with graphics. I'm simply using the PrintForm statement. The problem is that the screen size doesn't allow the form to expand to a full page. Meaning, I can only print on the top three-quarters of the page.
My question is how can I make the form height increase to greater than the screen height?
Ideally, I'll display this expanded form in a MDI parent window that allows the user to scroll to the bottem part of the expanded form.

How To Set Picture Size, Tabstrip Size And Form Size To Fit Different Resolution?
Just a very simple question, but just can't figure out how to set it...
I use the below code to set the tabstrip size and picture size at run-time, the width is working fine but the height will not show perfectly for every resolution set (especially 800, 600). The figure .2, .048, .04 is by try and error.... anyone have any good idea to set it no matter which resolution is used?
public sub Form_Resize
TabStrip1.height = Me.height - TabStrip1.Top
TabStrip1.width = Me.width - (Me.width * .2)
For Each picture In Picture1()
picture.width = form1.ScaleWidth * 0.048
picture.height = form1.ScaleHeight* 0.04

Changing The Size Of The Forms & Controls According To The Screen Size
I am creating an application in VB 6 that has many forms and each forms has
several different controls. I am working on a 21' screen how will I take

More Classes = Greater Exe Size?
Someone was just telling me that creating classes to do work inside of an application actually produces larger executables compared to simply putting the same number of lines of code in a module - True?
Form Size After Making Exe
Question on the size of a form. When I compile my project on one PC and run the exe, the form size is correct. When I move the project to another PC and compile, the controls on the right side and bottom of the form get chopped and I have to manually resize the form to show them. I need to compile on the other PC in order to use an older version of a 3rd party component.
Is there some setting I need to check to prevent this from happening.
Thanks for any ideas.

Load A Form To Fit Any Screen Size
Please I like to code my form to load without scartering the component put on the form weather it load on 800 X 600 screen or 1020 X 760 resolution. Please help me out
Form Sizing To Fit Within A Given Screen Size
I have an application whose main form is centred on the screen and barely fits at the top and bottom on a screen resolution of 1024 X 1268. Though things fit and look fine at this resolution (on a large monitor to boot) I know that in order for this application to be transferable it must be able to display on smaller monitors and coarser resolutions.
My question is this: Where in the project's code would you put the code that finds the screen dimensions of the monitor the App is being loaded up on, at the display resolution the user is operating on?
Is it just as simple as giving a minimum distance (in twips) from the screen height to the form height and one for the difference from the bottom of the screen to the bottom of the form? Where does one look to find the Property "Screen.Height"?
Form Size Changes With Different Screen Resolution?
i have create a program under the resolution of 1024x768. Is it possible that the form of my program gets stretched even if i distribute this program to the computer of the same resolution, i.e 1024x768.
Form Size Vs. Screen Resolution
how do you determine form size (height and width) based on selected system screen resolution?
example: if monitor resolution is set for 800x600 what would be the form size (height and width) if i wanted the form to be same size as screen?
what is the relation of the height and width indicated in VB6 to the screen resolution?
How To Set Form Width To Screen Size?
I have made a text scroll program that runs at the top of the screen. it has a fixed width and hight right now to fit 1024x768
what I need is, when the program starts it makes the form the same width as the screen no matter what screen size the user has.. height can stay the same. form doesnt move so it doesnt need to dock or anything either.
Resizing Form In VBA According To Screen Size

Form Size In Different Fonts And Screen Resolutions
I've got one user who uses large fonts and a lower (800x600) resolution on their PC. This causes my form to run off the edges and they can't see the controls or even close the form.
I've read several older threads about this but I'm still not sure how I should approach fixing the issue. Any advice? I tried to have patience but it took to long! -DW
Stretch Image To Form (or Screen) Size
I have a form that opens maximized so it'll cover the entire screen in any resolution. I want an image box to cover and stretch over the entire form (or screen) as well no matter what the resolution. I've tried the followin excerpts of code, but none of them work:
image1.width = screen.width
image2.height = screen.height
image1.width = me.scalewidth
image1.hieght = me.scaleheight
Could someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
I also tried changin the form's scale mode property to "pixel" but that didn't do too much.

N00b Question - Form Not Same Size On Diff. Screen Resolutions
/me new to forums
I start off by making a new form...maximize...put a command button on upper-left-most corner...another on the lower-right-most corner...make .exe
It looked fine on 1024x768, but when I reduced the resolution to 800x600 the button became huge, and the lower-right button was not there. How do I make the form the same size for all resolutions, or, how do I make scrollbars for the form instead? VB does not make one automatically. Actually, maybe the scrollbars idea sounds better, but I don't know how to use them. Please help...
In Access, Resize Size Application To Size Form
I'm using Access.
I want to specify the size of the application (Access) to be adapted with the size of a form (which dimensions can't be changed) and i want the form to be anchored on the top left of the application. I thought to put the code in the Form_load.
I found a lot of threads that deal with resizing but all of them seem to answer the problem 'size of the controls' with 'size of the form'.
If someone can help me !
Thanks by advance.
PictureBox Size Change With Form Size [Solved]
I have a toolbar and a statusbar on my form, i want the size of the picturebox to follow the size of the form. So this is my code
Private Sub Form_Resize()
If Me.WindowState <> 1 Then 'not minimized
On Error Resume Next
Picture1.Top = Toolbar1.Top + Toolbar1.Height
Picture1.Left = 0
Picture1.Width = StatusBar1.Width
Picture1.Height = StatusBar1.Top - (Toolbar1.Top + Toolbar1.Height)
This works perfect if the window state is 0 (normal) if it is maximized the size of the picturebox is the same as it was before i maximized.
Below is the testcode

Form Size - Picture Size - Different On Dell
I recently wrote a program which has a number of forms with background pictures. They have worked well and looked good on all manner of systems. The pictures were created the right sizes for the forms.
However, yesterday the program was installed on a brand new Dell (I din't know the spec.) and while the forms themselves looked fine, the pictures which were their backgrounds only used part of the form area - the upper left.
I don't know how to fix this. I can't even get to see it on my machine. Any ideas out there? Please?

Size Form In Ratio (Proportional Size)
Is it possible to resize my form in ratio?
When you drag your form bigger or smaller from the corner, you can virtually size in any direction - height and width. What I want is to resize the form in ratio. A proportional size, so you can *only* drag the form bigger or smaller in the RIGHT ratio (No Height and Width sizing).
Height = 100
Width = 56.18
This is a ratio of 16:9 (1.78)
The user must only be able to drag from the corner in that ratio (So no Height and Width sizing)
I saw a program lately...
"Show window contents while dragging" was disbaled, and that gray line that appears when sizing could only be dragged in the right ratio...Trying to size in height and width was not possible, they could only be sized together...
[I find this really difficult to explain, I hope someone understands it]
Can anyone please please help!!!!

Screen Size Problem - How Do You Accomdate Multiple Screen Settin Gs?
Porting my applications from one machine to another sometimes results in the
app covering the entire screen - sometimes control features are hidden, or
close to hidden, at the bottom. I understand that different screen settings
are affecting the size of my app - what I don't understand is how to modify
my app to accommodate varying screen settings. Any suggestions?
