If you have access to metalink, have a look at documents 1071248.6 and 118632.1. Basically it's about setting an extra parameter (ClientDPI). But I have no experience with it.

Easy answer - work out the resolution your user will use and redo ALL your forms.

Hard answer - have a look at http://www.orafaq.com/forum/m/220038/67467/?srch=change+screen+size#msg_220038 and http://www.orafaq.com/forum/m/167903/67467/?srch=change+screen+size#msg_167903 and http://www.orafaq.com/forum/m/159479/67467/?srch=change+screen+size#msg_159479

Thnx for replying but this is not the solution i m looking for, because my company works with different clients with this single system so never know what resolution they are working at, so thats why i need to get resolution.

Do yourself a favour. Write one form for a particular resolution using PLL libraries and database procedure for as much as possible. Save it as "my_form600x480". Clone that form, increase the window and canvas sizes, make the screen elements wider etc. Save it as "my_form800x600".

Create an initial form which either determines the size of the screen or has a pair of buttons on it - one to start in 600x400 and the other in 800x600. Then set some global as '600x400' or '800x600' and use that as the suffix in all of the subsequent form calls.
