Setting the resolution


We have a product that is running as a kiosk. Occasionaly, some yahoo goes
in and screws with the screen resolution. Is there some way I can force it
back to a resolution that I know works?

TIA - Jeff.

Changing the screen resolution requires native API calls, this link should
help you: http://dotnet.mvps.org/dotnet/faqs/?id=setscreenresolution&lang=en

By the way, I found that link within 2 seconds of searching Google :-)

You can check for changes to the display resolution using the
SystemEvents class which i believe is in the Microsoft.Win32
namespace.

The appropriate event is: DisplaySettingsChanged

Note that the events in this class aren't called on the GUI thread so
you should do the 'InvokeRequired' check if you're updating any GUI
objects.

He doesn't mean yahoo.com.  He means a person to which he refers to as "a  
yahoo".  From "Gulliver's Travels", meaning "a crude or brutish person".

I'm sure he would be very happy if he could disable the yahoo.  
Unfortunately, it's hard to know in advance which users you don't want  
using your software.  :)
