    Screen resolution in VB.net

    I have notice that in VB6,
    after building an application one must again write some codes to make it fit on any screen that it will be run on.
    Mine is giving me one hell of a time. I have decided to migrate to VB.net.
    My question is ....
    do we the same scenario with VB.net?

    It's considerably better in VB.NET, but the issue still remains. If you have a form that is full screen, you have no way of knowing exactly how big it will end up. What you have in VB.NET is the ability to anchor and dock items. I generally find that anchoring is sufficient, but I find that I often get it wrong, at first. Anchoring is pretty simple, since it is just a matter of clicking on a few things, but if you get the wrong anchors, controls can stretch in weird ways.
    My usual boring signature: Nothing

    anchor and dock are properties for controles. Check the properties of a control.
