    I created a small calculation program for my HP iPAQ214 (VGA device).
    The application uses 480x640 screen. The GUI of my allpication is made of some labels, textboxes and buttons.

    When the application was finished I compiled two versions for PC and PPC.
    The PC version looks very nice and all screen objects are the same (location, size, font size) as they were drawn in B4PPC.

    PPC application looks completely different. Neither dimension of screen objects nor font size is all right (eg fonts look much bigger). What can be the reason???
    Is there any solution for this problem?

    Being a vga device, if optimized compilation is used, then all your controls will be re-alocated...
    TRy compiling in forced QVGA will force thprogra to think the screen is half the size...

    Also take a look at the tutorials and code samples for "working wih VGA screens"

    Thanks Cableguy for your answer.

    I indeed used optimized compilation in order to speed up the application.
    I'd like to make use of my VGA device and that is why I wouldn't like to make a qVGA application (240x320 screen resolution) and run it on my VGA device as "double pixel".

    Maybe there is another solution?

    Managing the screen resolution take a bit of effort and gymnastics....

    Yes that's true. Maybe Erel will manage to solve this problem in future updates.
    Once more ... thanks Cableguy.
