You can only control the size of the child form when it is not maximized, then using the normal .Height and .Width properties you can set it to whatever you want. So you would set .WindowState = vbNormal then set the height and width accordingly.

You can set the form's BorderStyle property to something like "Fixed Single".  Or do you mean you want to allow the user to resize, but only to a certain size?

If it is a true child form in your MDI application, you can position the child form in its Load event:

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Me.Move 1000, 1000
End Sub
