Monitor Resolution Through API

There is a simple way to get Monitor resolutions through a WinAPI call. Declare this in a module:

 
Declare Function GetsystemMetrics Lib "User" (ByVal _
        nIndex As Integer) As Integer




And make a call to this API in Form_Load or Form_Resize event:

 
Sub Form_Resize() 

dim xRes as integer
dim yRes as integer

xRes = GetsystemMetrics(0)
yRes = GetsystemMetrics(1)

If xRes < 1024 and yRes < 768 Then
                ' Write your control resize 
                ' and reposition code here
Else
                Exit Sub
End If
