Setting Multiple Display Resolutions Independently

And now for something completely different....

I have a customer running a Labview application on a machine with 2 monitors.

The resolution settings on the second screen are critical, so I need to set them programmatically without doing anything to the primary screen's settings.

I have seen VI's (and supporting dll's) for checking and changing the display resolution, but did not see any way to adress them to the specific device that I need to set.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

An excellent question. I know that the GToolBox has functions for changing screen resolution, but I have not tested it before. You can find it and info for resizing on the FAQ:

You may have to make a call to either your video driver DLL or the user32.dll in order to resize different monitor resolutions differently.
