Setting desktop resolution?

Recommended Posts

Quinch

Short version, can it be done via AutoIt? To extend the question, can it be done to set the resolution to dimensions the monitor itself doesn't support?

; Function Name:    _ChangeScreenRes()
; Description:    Changes the current screen geometry, colour and refresh rate.
; Version:        1.0.0.1
; Parameter(s):  $i_Width - Width of the desktop screen in pixels. (horizontal resolution)
;                  $i_Height - Height of the desktop screen in pixels. (vertical resolution)
;                  $i_BitsPP - Depth of the desktop screen in bits per pixel.
;                  $i_RefreshRate - Refresh rate of the desktop screen in hertz.
; Requirement(s):   AutoIt Beta > 3.1
; Return Value(s):  On Success - Screen is adjusted, @ERROR = 0
;                  On Failure - sets @ERROR = 1
; Forum(s):      http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=20121

I don't recommend setting not supported resolutions.
