What's this help button ...

Is there someone who know how I can get the What's This help button visible while the form's borderstyle is still Resizable?

You can make the borderstyle resizable, but the What's this help button does not show unless the max and min buttons are set to false.

I need both.
Can this be done with SendMessage API?

If it can be done, I don't know how.  Even Microsoft applications such as Word and Excel don't use both.  Your best bet might be to use a menu option for the What's This Help like Word and Excel do.

If there is a way, I would like to know it, too.

Any idea how to do this?

The company I work for uses RoboHelp.  If you don't have a few hundred dollars to fork out for a help system, Visual Studio provides Help Workshop to build a help file.  "ShowWhatsThis" in the VB help demonstrates how to create a popup menu with the question "What's This?" when the user right-clicks on a control.

Hope this gets you started.
