I have an API, which returns the values for the Screen resolution in use ( let's say 1360, 768 ) I hoped to use this in formulae, to ensure my forms were 'centred'. I wanted to use the width and height properties of the form in question to do so, but it appears ( in Access 2010 ) there is NO height property ?
Any suggestions or ideas, I'd be grateful for.

Why not simply set the Form's AutoCenter property to Yes?

I have done ( and will check ). On a smaller screen though, it appears the controls are 'off centre' - maybe I mean I'd like all the controls to be positioned 'centrally and proportionally' to the form being centred ? Thanks for advice.

I second that one.

This is one of those items for which it is not a simple matter to fit things to the screen resolution. Better to use a third-party app which has been in use for a long time and it works well. I understand the budget may not allow for that but it really is NOT an easy thing to code.
