Hi all

i wrote the below code in my application

Public Module resChanger

    Const ENUM_CURRENT_SETTINGS As Integer = -1
    Const CDS_UPDATEREGISTRY As Integer = &H1
    Const CDS_TEST As Long = &H2

    Const CCDEVICENAME As Integer = 32
    Const CCFORMNAME As Integer = 32

    Const DISP_CHANGE_SUCCESSFUL As Integer = 0
    Const DISP_CHANGE_RESTART As Integer = 1
    Const DISP_CHANGE_FAILED As Integer = -1

    Private Declare Function EnumDisplaySettings Lib "user32" Alias "EnumDisplaySettingsA" (ByVal lpszDeviceName As Integer, ByVal iModeNum As Integer, ByRef lpDevMode As DEVMODE) As Integer
    Private Declare Function ChangeDisplaySettings Lib "user32" Alias "ChangeDisplaySettingsA" (ByRef DEVMODE As DEVMODE, ByVal flags As Integer) As Integer

    <StructLayout(LayoutKind.Sequential)> Public Structure DEVMODE
        <MarshalAsAttribute(UnmanagedType.ByValTStr, SizeConst:=CCDEVICENAME)> Public dmDeviceName As String
        Public dmSpecVersion As Short
        Public dmDriverVersion As Short
        Public dmSize As Short
        Public dmDriverExtra As Short
        Public dmFields As Integer
        Public dmOrientation As Short
        Public dmPaperSize As Short
        Public dmPaperLength As Short
        Public dmPaperWidth As Short
        Public dmScale As Short
        Public dmCopies As Short
        Public dmDefaultSource As Short
        Public dmPrintQuality As Short
        Public dmColor As Short
        Public dmDuplex As Short
        Public dmYResolution As Short
        Public dmTTOption As Short
        Public dmCollate As Short
        <MarshalAsAttribute(UnmanagedType.ByValTStr, SizeConst:=CCFORMNAME)> Public dmFormName As String
        Public dmUnusedPadding As Short
        Public dmBitsPerPel As Short
        Public dmPelsWidth As Integer
        Public dmPelsHeight As Integer
        Public dmDisplayFlags As Integer
        Public dmDisplayFrequency As Integer
    End Structure

    Public Sub changeRes(ByVal theWidth As Integer, ByVal theHeight As Integer)

        Dim DevM As DEVMODE

        DevM.dmDeviceName = New [String](New Char(32) {})
        DevM.dmFormName = New [String](New Char(32) {})
        DevM.dmSize = CShort(Marshal.SizeOf(GetType(DEVMODE)))

        If 0 <> EnumDisplaySettings(Nothing, ENUM_CURRENT_SETTINGS, DevM) Then
            Dim lResult As Integer

            DevM.dmPelsWidth = theWidth
            DevM.dmPelsHeight = theHeight
            DevM.dmPelsWidth = 1280
            DevM.dmPelsHeight = 1024

            lResult = ChangeDisplaySettings(DevM, CDS_TEST)

            If lResult = DISP_CHANGE_FAILED Then
                MsgBox("Display Change Failed.", MsgBoxStyle.OkOnly + MsgBoxStyle.Critical, "Screen Resolution Change Failed")

                lResult = ChangeDisplaySettings(DevM, CDS_UPDATEREGISTRY)

                Select Case lResult
                    Case DISP_CHANGE_RESTART
                        MsgBox("You must restart your computer to apply these changes.", MsgBoxStyle.OkOnly + MsgBoxStyle.Critical, "Screen Resolution Has Changed")
                    Case DISP_CHANGE_SUCCESSFUL
                        MsgBox("Display Change Successful.", MsgBoxStyle.OkOnly + MsgBoxStyle.Information, "Screen Resolution Successful")
                    Case Else
                        MsgBox("Display Change Failed.", MsgBoxStyle.OkOnly + MsgBoxStyle.Critical, "Screen Resolution Change Failed")
                End Select
            End If
        End If
    End Sub
End Module

Please tell me how to call it in a button click event.

Thank you

There is no such concept as "call a module". You can call a method, a property (indirectly, a getter or a setter will be called), an operator.

To handle a click event, use AddHandler:[^],[^].

That was about the construct which allows for both named and anonimous handler methods and therefore the best and universal.

Alternatively, use handles:[^].

To call method defined in module,

in side button click event,
changeRes(567,234)'pass your own values for height width


Happy Coding!
