how to change the application's window size according to the resolution size of any monitor in C#

i have done a windows application and also i created a setup file for the same application in VS studio 2005.
When i install the application in any other system, the window state is maximised but i can only see, half of the side of my real window with controls which i use to see in my development system.
What can i do to change the windows size and controls present in the window to automatically change according to screen resolution of any system.s montior where i install my window's application

i came to know that SCREEN class in .Net will be helpful but not able to get any idea/conclusion with that class

i have developed in C# 2.0
Posted

C#
System.Drawing.Rectangle workingRectangle = 
			Screen.PrimaryScreen.WorkingArea;


This will fetch you the working area Height and width for the monitor.


C#
int widthVal=workingRectangle.Width;
int heightVal=workingRectangle.Height;



Best of luck.

C#
intX = Screen.PrimaryScreen.Bounds.Width;
intY = Screen.PrimaryScreen.Bounds.Height;


u can use above code get screen width and height

and then pass intx and inty to screen

C#
this.Width = intX ;
this.Height = intY ;
this.Refresh();


but for controls u have use some other way like Anchor codings.
pls refer following link
