    Hi !
    I have created my own application with b4ppc . It runs on almost all devices without problem . Today I installed it on HP IPAQ 211 Enterprise Handheld , and there my application is not displayed properly . Forms are reduced to very small size and controls can't be viewed properly . What to do ? can anyone help me ?:sign0085:

    Perhaps all your other devices were QVGA (320 x 240) while the iPAQ211 is VGA (640 x 480). On Basic4ppc v6.50 you can use Force QVGA compilation to make your app look the same on a VGA device as on a QVGA device. The soon to be abailable Basic4ppc v6.80 has an AutoScale mode of compilation that supercedes Force QVGA but does much the same thing.

    Alternatively you can detect your screen size and have your code adapt according to the screen size. You can read this thread but AutoScale will make a lot of this out of date.

    Did you try compiling your program using the:

    Device (Force QVGA) EXE

    selection in the Desktop IDE?
