In my program I have the form set at certain size, its got a colourful background and everything, but when I press the maximize square (at the top right of the screen) the form itself maximises, but its contents doesn't. I havent been able to find anything useful on the subject. If anyone could help Id really apreciate it. Thanks, Min.

Contents maximizing? You need to resize them manually. Usually, just record the distance between, for example, the width of the control and the width of its container.
To demonstrate, put a PictureBox on a Form, paste the following, and resize the window at runtime...
Private mW As Long
Private mH As Long
Private Sub Form_Load()
ÿ ÿ mW = Me.Width - Picture1.Width
ÿ ÿ mH = Me.Height - Picture1.Height
Private Sub Form_Resize()
ÿ ÿ On Error Resume Next
ÿ ÿ Picture1.Width = Me.Width - mW
ÿ ÿ Picture1.Height = Me.Height - mH
ÿ ÿ On Error GoTo 0
I hope this gets you started.
