Scaling Form in Windows CE


W

Workaholic

Hi,
Please can somebody help me. I have written a Windows CE form
application. It's working fine, but when I port it to another Windows
CE device, the screen display looks terrible. I have spent all day
reading postings, and playing around with auto-scaling, but can't seem
to get anywhere. If I use Visual Studio to deploy the application to
different Windows CE devices, the form will look good on one but not
anther (I'm not convinced that the auto-scaling is doing that much).
However, without auto-scaling, quite often the buttons will be too
small for their text label.

I'm really struggling to get my head around scaling. Can anybody point
me to an example (preferably in VB) that shows how you can control the
placement and the sizing so that it work across devices with different
screen resolutions, etc

Thanks so much

What exactly do you mean by 'it looks terrible'? Can you be a bit more
specific?
