    Does this help for getting it? <post#=118962>post 118962</post#>

    I don't know of any way to set it. Maybe someone else has a method.

    Changing the screen resolution involves the ChangeDisplaySettings API function.

    Be extremely careful when doing this - it's all too easy to leave the user with a messed-up system. If you're not familiar with API functions, I recommend leaving well alone. Getting the screen resolution is OK, changing it is risky.

    Here are two links dealing with the subject: http://www.mvps.org/vbnet/index.html?http:...i/_api/apic.htm and http://www.allapi.net/apilist/Change...Settings.shtml.
