    How to ensure ui adjusts to every device resolution

    Hi all

    I have my mainwindow which has a couple of widgets on there (stackedwidget, Lineedit, listwidget, pushbuttons)

    I have set the layout to the Grid layout but the lineedit and listwidget is always wider than the actual screen.

    I am testing on a Nokia 5800.

    Thanks in advance.

    When you set up your main window in Designer, make it smaller in both dimensions than the smallest screen you'll use.

    You can also check the screen size of the device and then use an 'if' statement to make adjustments as needed.
    I used the following code to determine if my app was running on a 3rd edition device and then set the max size of the widgets so they would fit and not break the layout.
      //get screen size
        QDesktopWidget* desktopWidget = QApplication::desktop();
        //get client rect.
        QRect rect = desktopWidget->availableGeometry();
        QSize size(rect.width() , rect.height());
        if(size.width() <= 250 || size.height() <= 300)
    I am not sure if thats the proper method as I am just learning but it worked fine for me.
