attach a handler to one(or more?) of the window size events (resize, resizebegin, resizeend, sizechanged) and recompute where the controls sit

For your situation when the form is maximized, do you want the controls to get bigger also? If not, you can just use the Control.Dock Property.

The problem was solved by using Scale function for each control with Maximize Scale Factor which calculate by divide size of form in case of maximize over size of form in case of normal .

Question is this solution need to add about a pixel or 2 for location of control,

How to can I make it accurate (without adding pixel)?

Second Question How to prevent editing of Textbox?

Last Question , when I set text at Textbox and minimize form then return to it again all text at textbox was clear. Do you know why something like this happen ?

Thanks for advance.

You know, you'd think someone would have developed something that would do this by now but I've yet to come across anything useful.

I tend to use a combination of sizable panels, dockable panels and basic math to complete this task. I create a "RenderControl" method that places and sizes my controls according to the form size and then in my load and resize event handlers I call my RenderControl method.

To bala: I believe WPF or whatever their latest shebang is does it, I know I had a heck of time placing controls with it.

As for preventing textbox editing, set the ReadOnly property to true.
As to why the contents are getting lost, I would say it is something to do with how you handle your resizing.
