Someone should help you out? Why? :D

To change the screen resolution you're going to need to build a wrapper for the file in another language.

Do you have any code that you have tried out? DIC does has policies, and you would get a lot more help if you tried (even if it doesn't work) and allowed people to point you in the right direction.

Trying to get people to do your homework for you won't work.

Please post your code like so:
[code] Paste Code Here [/code]

Thanks fro helping us help you.

why do you want to change the screen resolution every time this is opend?

To me that seems like it would get a bit annoying if my screen res changed every time i opened this file up.

I believe it would be far easier and less annoying to all using your app/whatnot if you just had it go full screen and then display the layout depending on the screen width and height, that way it will look mostly the same on each computer without having to change people's screen resolution.

I know that if I used an application that changed my resolution without reseting my settings afterwards, or without my permission, I would simply delete the app and give it a TERRIBLE review. People get very testy when it comes to their computer settings.

I could not agree more... It is simply bad to try to control what your user has set up...

You guys got me wrong. All I want is the code to make the application fit fully into any screen resolution; even if the screen resolution has to be changed and then would be reverted back after the application is closed.
