What I have done is set an environment variable in WinNT and Win2k PC's that has the display resolution.  Then I get that and change my display accordingly.

Subject: vrf Monitor resolution

How do I programmatically change my panel size for users who use different
Windows Monitor Screen area display settings? As an example: I have an X vs.
Y plot on a panel in a program. I use screen resolution 1024 X 768 but the
user computer may use 800 X 600 or 1024 X 768. The program panel X vs. Y
plot will not be completely visible with a resolution of 800 X 600.

Is there a way to read the Windows settings of the monitor resolution?

Is there a way to programmatically change the X vs. Y Plot width and height
appearance properties?

Do I need to make a different program for the different screen resolutions?
