    Unanswered: How do allow for different resolutions

    the db I made is for 1024x768 viewing, how do I allow for a 600x800 viewer?
    Is there an easy way or do I need to make 2 versions?

    Any ideas would be great

    Cheers

    I did come accross some code which auto sized the form based on the screen resolution. I think it was in Litwin / Getz / A.N Other's Access Developer handbook(s). It seemed inordiantely complex. I think it resized every control and every font to keep the design consistent, seemed to work but took up a fair bit of processing.

    I try to design for 800x600 for sub forms, as being the lowest common denominator these days.

    Not free, but I've read good things about it.
