Is it possible to have a standard size for canvas or window of the form? like different users are having different screen resolutions and may have different screen sizes which cause forms not to come proper on the user screen. Is there some solution to avoid the user's resolution and should work on some standard measurements?

I'm not sure I understand your question but canvases have a fixed size, and you can prevent a window from being resized, maximized and minimized. What do you mean by "standard size"?

I mean the form window size. Actually, optimum screen resolution of monitor or LCD varies with their actual size. This cause the form window not showing properly on the screen. Sometime half of the form is shown and there is no scroll bar to scroll the form down. same form is opening perfectly fine with other screens. Standard size means that it will show same on every screen.

One option is to develop forms for the lowest resolution your users have. For example, it is 1024 x 768. Size of your form should not be larger than that. Otherwise, people who use higher resolution (such as 1900 x 1200) would see the whole form, but those who use 1024 x 768 would see only part of it.

Let me clarify this thing.

I used to develop new forms with my screen resolution (1600 x 900). What I get from your reply is that this resolution is the minimum resolution that a form can work properly. So i have to change my screen resolution to (800 x 600), probably the minimum resolutions in every screen now days, so that form can appear proper in all screen with resolution (800 x 600) and above.

Am i correct in interpreting your reply?

Yes, I believe so.

Although, I sincerely hope that - nowadays - nobody uses 800 x 600.
