    1024 X 768 screen height and width in VB

    I need to write an app for 1024*768 but I do not want to develop at that resolution, it is just too small for all of the VB windows. What would the height and width be to make the form "appear" 1024 X 768 so I can see how it is going to look? Does anyone have a chart or something for 100 X 600, 1024 X 768, etc.?

    You mean you want to develop an app in 800x600 (your current resolution) that will actually run (for the user) in 1024x768?

    acutally, my current resolution is 1280 X 1024 and I want to develop an app at 1024 X 768, without actually setting my resolution to 1024 X 768.

    Ah, good. I was scared otherwise.

    It's not exact but the form layout window is usually close enough.

    If you have the forms 'ScaleMode' property set to '1 - Twip' then
    the 1024 width becomes 15360 / 15 = 1024.
    Its a 115% increase from the target resolution.

    RobDog, I had figured that our simply by adjusting to 1024 X 768 for a second, but that is a much easier method. Thank you very much.
