Consider the hard way (the easy way is getting a control to do it for you):

In the form's load event, you need to keep track of every controls size and position in comparison to the form.  A percentheight, percentwidth, percentleft, and percenttop, if you will.  Then in the form's resize event, you will have to go through each control and re-adjust the size and location based on the new form's size multiplied by those percent* values for that control.
While this may sound easy for a few controls on a form, several controls can be unwieldy and dozens of controls virtually impossible.

For few controls in a form: (vp is a control)

Private Sub Form_Resize()
    Dim myScale!
    myScale! = ScaleHeight - 2 * vp.Top
    If myScale! > 0 Then vp.Height = myScale!
    myScale! = ScaleWidth - vp.Left - vp.Top
    If myScale! > 0 Then vp.Width = myScale!
    DoEvents
End Sub

I'm sorry the code you wrote didn't work.

Private Sub Form_Resize()
        Dim myScale!
        myScale! = ScaleHeight - 2 * vp.Top
        If myScale! > 0 Then vp.Height = myScale!
        myScale! = ScaleWidth - vp.Left - vp.Top
        If myScale! > 0 Then vp.Width = myScale!
        DoEvents
    End Sub


It appears a run-time-error '424' (myScale!) when I rum my program. Do I need to write anything else in the other procs?

Try this:

Private Sub Form_Resize()
        Dim myScale As Single
        vp.Top = 0
        vp.Left = 0
        myScale = ScaleHeight - vp.Top
        If myScale > 0 Then vp.Height = myScale
        myScale = ScaleWidth - vp.Left - vp.Top
        If myScale > 0 Then vp.Width = myScale
        DoEvents
End Sub
