Some times we need to design forms in our applications beyond the size of our development machine's screen resolution. But the
problem is, our development environment
does not allow us to resize our forms beyond our screen resolution (screen resolution –
borders to be exact).
One method is to do the development on the client resolution. But it’s not going to work all the time, if we have to do the development and send it across to a different physical location.
The other method is to insert a ‘
Panel’ to the form and change its size to the one at the client's end. The one I am working at has the resolution of ‘1440 X 900’. But I want
to make a form which fits for ‘1920 X 1200’. I change the
size to a bit less than ‘1920 X 1200’ because I have to leave space for the borders and the scroll bars.
I would make it somewhere around ‘1870 X 1150’.
And change the following form properties also:
And you will note that there are two scroll bars available at design time
with which you can scroll and place controls beyond your screen's resolution. And when run on
the client environment,
the form will maximize and since the panel is a bit smaller than the actual screen size, the scroll bars will not be visible.
I have been in software industry for more than 8 years. I have developed different type of software using different languages. Many of them are database related (both web & window based), SQL being as the back end most of the time. Up-to-date I have knowledge in languages such as C#, VB.Net, T-SQL, JAVA, VB6 & C++, making C# the most proficient of all. Also I have worked using different technologies like ASP.Net, SharePoint, Crystal Reports (But I really hate designing reports) & MS SQL Server and have involved in designing & developing software for major companies like FedEx, Softlogic Holdings, IronOne Technologies & Brandix. Currently I am working as a Tech Lead in Singapore.
