Windows Form App - Screen Resolution And Font Size150%

Windows Form App - Screen Resolution And Font Size150%

Windows Form App - Screen Resolution And Font Size150%

(OP)
OK, I am totally confused. This is a windows app that looks fine on my compute (1280x1024, Smaller Font). When I run on computers with different screen size and medium font size (or larger) the forms don't display properly. I have tried using scale properties of none, font, and dpi. None of them seem to fix all the issues. After doing some searching and visiting several posts I still don't understand how I'm supposed to fix this. Do I have to write code to resize and relocate all of my controls? Am I missing something or ding something wrong?

OK, this is driving me nuts. Does anybody have some simple guidelines as to how to make my windows forms work with the different screen settings of 125% and 150%? I have read a lot of information, but it all seems so confusing. Do i have to re-do my entire app in WPF? This seems crazy. This shouldn't be this hard. I have my forms auto scale set to DPI.
