Hi here is what u need,
 Override the WM_SYSCOMMAND
 in that function
        if((nID == SC_MAXIMIZE) || (nID == SC_SIZE))
      return;
        CDialog::OnSysCommand(nID, lParam);

This will do.

To force the mainframe to a specific size, handle the message WM_GETMINMAXINFO. Modify ptMinTrackSize and ptMaxTrackSize in the MINMAXINFO struct passed to your message handler.

Ex: This will prevent the user from making the window smaller then 200 by 200:

void CMainFrame::OnGetMinMaxInfo(MINMAXINFO FAR* lpMMI)
{
    lpMMI->ptMinTrackSize.x = 200;
    lpMMI->ptMinTrackSize.y = 200;
   
    // Pass to baseclass handler
    CMDIFrameWnd::OnGetMinMaxInfo(lpMMI);
}
