Change settings by clicking on the name of the application window tab -> Size

If you just want your game to stretch based on the window's size, you want to look in the application's Properties > Window (the second tab, looks like a monitor) > Options... (near the bottom) > Resize display to fill window size. This is just to stretch the game to the window, though, which at this point the user has to do himself.

If you want to automatically adjust the window's size to something convenient, you'll want the Window Control Object. You can use it to resize/reposition the window during runtime. But there's a little trickiness to it, because you have to account for the header/menu bar/frame to get the sizes perfect.

This is what I've been using. It should do the trick. Right now it will double the window's size ( 320 * 2 ), but if you want it tripled or whatever just adjust the * 2 bits.

Set Horizontal Size to
320 * 2 + ( WinXSize( "Window Control" ) - ClientWidth( "Window Control" ) )
Set Vertical Size to
240 * 2 + ( WinYSize( "Window Control" ) - ClientHeight( "Window Control" ) )
Set Horizontal Position to
Max(Int(( ScreenXSize( "Window Control" ) / 2 ) - ( ( 320 * 2 + ( WinXSize( "Window Control" ) - ClientWidth( "Window Control" ) ) ) / 2 ) ), 0 )
Set Vertical Position to
Max(Int(( ScreenYSize( "Window Control" ) / 2 ) - ( ( 240 * 2 + ( WinYSize( "Window Control" ) - ClientHeight( "Window Control" ) ) ) / 2 ) ), 0 )

I can't imagine why. I tried copy-pasting it myself and it works just fine.

You're grabbing each full line of code and nothing but, right?

yes i just copied the codes.
maybe there is something in the application settings that i need to check or something like that?
i also noticed that "WinXSize" does not highlight when i copy or write it.

Yeah, I'm not sure what it could be, then. What program are you using? MMF 2? 2.5? Is your Window Control Object up-to-date? Did you rename the object as something else?

In any case, you could always just re-enter the code into your own game. It shouldn't be too hard to find the right expressions through MMF.

so after trying everything i finally could figure it out.
when writing the code i used "retreive data from an object" on the window control object it gave me the options of size and position so the codes ended like this:
320*2+(Window X size( "Window Control" )-ClientWidth( "Window Control" ))
anyway thanks a lot for your help, is nice to see that people in here really help a lot.
