i think i didn't stated the  q. in a right way

the thing is i dont want the icon and the system menu which appears whenever we click in a left corner of the form
but i want the control box i.e. those 3 btns means min/max/close.
i think now it is more clear

It's just not possible. I have searched lately information about that and I found official statement from MS that this is behavior "by design" and it cannot be removed. The one I showed you was just a work around to hide all.

Sorry, I cannot find the exact link but have a look here:

http://www.dotnet247.com/247reference/msgs/24/121457.aspx

It says:  I did read
one post where this question was posed and the Microsoft
response was that this is by design.

Follow this link and you will see a lot of discussions on the same point from this site:

http://www.google.ch/search?q=mdi+remove+controlbox+site%3Adotnet247.com&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en&meta=

The result is always the same: you can hide those elements only in some special ocasions.

Ops, here it is:

Note   When set to false, the ControlBox property has no effect on a Multiple Document Interface (MDI) child form that is displayed maximized at time of creation.
