This is fairly straight forward and entails resizing the form and then selecting Android at the time of Deploying your Desktop project. You can deploy it without resizing the form however it will look small based on the higher resolutions available to Android devices. See the options available below for resizing your form:


Option 1: Change the form dimensions in the form designer and then click the build default form button. This will re-size a default form to the size you specified. (Resetting to the default will remove any modifications done to the form including font and background colors as well as additional controls and tabs added)

Option 2: Manually resize your form in the form designer. First specify form dimensions and then you can resize each control. You can resize similar controls simultaneously by holding down the shift key and clicking each control. This is only recommended if you are working with a custom designed form that would otherwise be reset using option 1.


Deploy the project to your Android device. See the article below to learn more about deploying to your Android based device:
