Take a look at this[^].

I find this site to be a little confusing, so in case it's not just me. :)

If you scroll down to just below the code listing there is a screen shot of what the Form should look like. So first create a Form with:
2 Labels
2 ListBoxes - named listDevices (top one) listSettings (bottom one)
1 Button - named btnSet

then copy the code from the site and paste it to replace the code in Form1.cs.

Then hook-up the listDevices_SelectedIndexChanged event handler to listDevices and away you go.

You could obviously hook-up the btnSet event handler too, if you are feeling adventurous. :-D

Good luck! :)

The code that I linked to enables you to get all the available resolutions for the device (they are listed in listSettings)
These items contain the resolution in height and width.

What you need to do is rather than add them to a ListBox is extract the figures from each, compare them to the largest found so far and if they are bigger save them as the largest, and so on.

The code was intended to show you that what you want to do is possible.

I am dreadfully sorry if it doesn't do precisely what you require but if you are not able to extrapolate from that code to your requirements then maybe programming is not the correct outlet for your talents.

You can use System.Windows.Forms.Screen.GetBounds() to get total size.
