Some users are 1024x768, some are 1280x1024 and some are on dual monitors (2048x768).

I want to have a form that appears in a separate window that will fill a 1024x768 screen fully.

I am setting MDI window to 770x558 and the main window to 757x488 (am also setting window position to 0,-16 to hide the title bar) in the WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE trigger.

The properties for the canvas and main window are set to 757x488.

However, the darndest thing is some forms fit perfectly and others have both vertical and horizontal scrollbars pointing to the window (not the MDI window) being a few "points" or "pixel" too much. Lowering the width and height by 1-3 fixes it, but is there a standard I can use for MDI and canvas/windows to give me a full 1024 screen and not fill the entire screen on larger resolutions?

Welcome to the world of Microsoft and the ability to have multiple hidden menu bars on the main window itself, that is, where there is NO standard.

Short answer - no.

If you have found a solution by making it one or two pixels smaller then declare 'victory' and move on.
