I think there is no way yet to find out screen resolution with PHP. hehehe.
If I am wrong please correct me.
But yet we can trick it to be happen ;-)
If not then how can we be developers. Right!

With javascript we find out screen resolution of PC. Store it in a cookie and display it with PHP.
Coool…eh! Fine, lets just do it.

<script LANGUAGE="javascript">
width = screen.width;
height = screen.height;
document.write("<b>You're set to "+width+ "X" +height+"</b>")
</script>
<?php
$yo=$_GET['width'];
echo $yo;
?>

For head section of webpage.

<?
if(isset($HTTP_COOKIE_VARS["users_resolution"]))
$screen_res = $HTTP_COOKIE_VARS["users_resolution"];
else //means cookie is not found set it using Javascript
{
?>
<script language="javascript">
<!--
writeCookie();
function writeCookie()
{
var today = new Date();
var the_date = new Date("December 31, 2023");
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;
document.cookie=the_cookie
location = 'screen.php';
}
//-->
</script>
<?
}
?>

Body section of webpage. Display the screen resolution.

<?php
echo "Your screen resolution is set at ". $screen_res;
?>
