One way to find a user's screen resolution with php is with the $HTTP_COOKIE_VARS function.

This post tutorial guide will show you how to retrieve, get, show, display, find your weg page (site) visitors screen resolution.

NOTE: for this function to work, you will need to have PHP, if you don't have PHP on your website, we recommend our friends at for PHP hosting. check them out.

the first thing to do is to copy and past this sample code into your editor, you can use notepad it you like:

   $screen_resolution = $HTTP_COOKIE_VARS["users_resolution"];
else //means cookie is not found set it using Javascript
<script language="javascript">

function writeCookie()
 var today = new Date();
 var the_date = new Date("December 31, 2010");
 var the_cookie_date = the_date.toGMTString();
 var the_cookie = "users_resolution="+ screen.width +"x"+ screen.height;
 var the_cookie = the_cookie + ";expires=" + the_cookie_date;
 location = 'show-user-screen-resolution-php.php';
<style type="text/css">

<p>Hello and Welcome to this Wallpaperama &quot;Get User's Screen Resolution&quot; Script.</p>
<p>As webmaster, we often need to get the user's screen resolution to make our visitor's expirience more enjoyable and fun.</p>
<p>One way wallpaperama has implemented this, is to customize specific webpages to our visitors depending on the computer screen resolution

setting or properties.</p>
<p>The PHP function to do this is: <span class="style1">isset</span>(<span class="style2">$HTTP_COOKIE_VARS</span>[<span

now save it as show-user-screen-resolution-php.php and upload it to your website.

after you have uploaded to your website, open the file with your browser (example:

after you have opened it, you will see your own screen resolution display on the screen.

Our friends at have provided us with free hosting to demonstrate how this script works.

NOTE: you will require to be hosted on a site that has PHP. If you need PHP web hosting, has great PHP packages available, I recommend them cuz i am very happy with them than from my previous web host provider.
link doesn't work.
when i tried opening file on my website and your demo it adds php to the address and says "the page cannot be found"
two .php extensions in the script
close, but no cigar.

this claims to be a "way to find a user's screen resolution with php," but is actually a way to find a user's screen resolution with javascript and pass it to php via a cookie.

the problem is, much of the time a developer would be looking to find out how to find a user's screen resolution with php, it's because he is trying to write something that will work for user's who keep javascript turned off for security reasons.

thus, since this proposed solution relies upon javascript, and not just php, it's of limited value in those situations.
how to find the resolution is understood but problem is how to set my form resolution to resolution of the computer on which it is running
hello sir,

when i add this code in my php page not working,but when i change file extension to .html then i add ur source code it works.can u help me to slove this issue.
it sounds like you dont have php on your site
yo i wanted to know if a user computer must have javascript enabled? I noticed there was JS code present so... I know its highly unlikely but user's who have it disabled this wont work...
