    You have to reposition or resize the individuals controls in your window manually.

    Oh! no ways... If my app has about 20 controls and 20 lines of text i have to ajdust the sizes accordingly? I mean this should happen when a person drags the corners or sides of the screen as well...

    It's a manual labor. You only need to resize the controls, though. They will take care of resizing their contents.

    ws referring to stand alone text. By what margins do i resize the controls? If the user drags the screen say by 30 inches, how much more should my controls increase... ?

    As I said, the text will resize automatically if you use controls.
    If you are drawing text yourself, I suggest avoiding that. Use static text (labels).
    This isn't rocket math, you know. You will simply need some formulas.

    Like, got a textbox at the bottom of your window?
    You can resize it to say, width - 128 and height - 128, or the like.
    Figure out how you want your contents and use formulas to determine position & size.
