    Red face Question in reference to Resolution and Sizable Forms.

    Good Morning everyone, 1st time post,

    I am new to C# and starting my first project with Visual Studio 2017. As a little background, I am decent with VB, VBA and Visual Studio 2015.

    I will be making a desktop application using WPF Forms. (Am open to a better suggestion).

    My question is, before I start this project, is there anything I need to preemptively do in order to have resolution options and/or Expandable form? Also, how would I setup resolution options? I want to make sure I have it all figured out before I do hours of work and find out I have the layout all wrong.

    (I know I can anchor elements, but I need it expandable for larger screens, my forms are going to be complex with lots of combo, images and text boxes)

    Thanks in advance,

    Abe.

    There's no such thing as WPF Forms. There's WPF and there's Windows Forms. One of the principles of the design of WPF was to handle reflow of content more like a browser and avoid some of the issues of Windows Forms. If you learn WPF then you are inherently doing what needs to be done.
