Design Visual

Resolution

Screenresolution 1024 x 768

The taskbar takes 26 pixels.
So your window should be 1024 x 742.
In this window you loose horizontally 2 x 4 pixels for the borders and vertically 2 x 4 pixels for the borders and another 26 pixels for the titlebar.
This leaves an effective area of 1016 x 706 pixels.

If you maximise the window, you win 8 pixels horizontally and 34 pixels vertically.

Icons

A nice free and open source icon library

Auto sizing controls

All controls have Anchor and Dock properties, which are useful to automatically stretch/align them when the form is resized.
