I enhanced the main form to allow better resizing and monitor dpi..

I enhanced the main form using table layout controls and better resizing...including being able to use the verticle splitter.

My monitor is set for large DPI fonts and the tool was very hard to use like that.

So how do I send in the change? Would anyone like the change?

I'm sorry, I'm confused. You enhanced the main form of . . . what exactly?

If you change your DPI settings of your monitor to 120dpi (Desktop->Properties->Settings Tab->Advanced Button->General Tab) from the default of 96, you'll notice the main form gets all messed up.

Basically all I did was change the "Outlook Bar" side of the form from using fixed width controls dynamically resizing controls. I did this by embedding them in in a couple Table Layout containers. In the process, I enabled the vertical splitter to allow user resizing. Now, the form looks good in any resolution and resizes nicely.
