    Unanswered: VB.Net Windows App Resolution problem

    What is the best way to handle resolution issues on the monitor when writing a windows app from VB.Net. Here's my problem:
    I developed an app on my laptop, it's widescreen and res is set to 1440 x 900. When I take my app and run it on a machine with an older Analog monitor and the res is 1024 x 768, all of the forms on the right and bottom are cut off.

    Wow, did you think they had a HD screen or what

    There are some few things as calculating the screen width and displaying the form accordingly.

    But in this case i allways set my screen res on the most popular reselution of the moment and develop the app. for that res.

    It turns out that I developed with 120 DPI and the target machines were at 96 DPI.
