Sorry, it does not work. I tested it without to try to move a ChildForm out of MainForm's size

use this method (add it to the MDI mainform)

Function ClientWindowProc( wnd: HWND; msg: Cardinal; wparam,
                           lparam: Integer ): Integer; stdcall;
Var
  f: Pointer;
Begin
  f:= Pointer( GetWindowLong( wnd, GWL_USERDATA ));
  Case msg of
    WM_NCCALCSIZE: Begin
        If ( GetWindowLong( wnd, GWL_STYLE ) and
             (WS_HSCROLL or WS_VSCROLL)) <> 0
        Then
          SetWindowLong( wnd, GWL_STYLE,
                         GetWindowLong( wnd, GWL_STYLE )
                         and not (WS_HSCROLL or WS_VSCROLL));
      End;
  End;
  Result := CallWindowProc( f, wnd, msg, wparam, lparam );
End;

procedure TMainForm.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
If ClientHandle <> 0 Then Begin
    If GetWindowLong( ClientHandle, GWL_USERDATA ) <> 0 Then
      Exit;
    SetWindowLong( ClientHandle, GWL_USERDATA,
                   SetWindowLong( ClientHandle, GWL_WNDPROC,
                                  integer( @ClientWindowProc)));
  end;

end;

or ovverride CreateWnd;

procedure TMyForm.CreateWnd;
var
 ClientCreateStruct: TClientCreateStruct;
begin
 inherited CreateWnd;
 if NewStyleControls then
   if BorderStyle <> bsDialog then
     SendMessage(Handle, WM_SETICON, 1, GetIconHandle) else
     SendMessage(Handle, WM_SETICON, 1, 0);
 if not (csDesigning in ComponentState) then
   case FormStyle of
     fsMDIForm:
       begin
         with ClientCreateStruct do
         begin
           idFirstChild := $FF00;
           hWindowMenu := 0;
           if FWindowMenu <> nil then hWindowMenu := FWindowMenu.Handle;
         end;
         FClientHandle := Windows.CreateWindowEx(WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE, 'MDICLIENT',
           nil, WS_CHILD or WS_VISIBLE or WS_GROUP or WS_TABSTOP or
           WS_CLIPCHILDREN or WS_CLIPSIBLINGS or
           MDIS_ALLCHILDSTYLES, 0, 0, ClientWidth, ClientHeight, Handle, 0,
           HInstance, @ClientCreateStruct);
         FClientInstance := MakeObjectInstance(ClientWndProc);
         FDefClientProc := Pointer(GetWindowLong(FClientHandle, GWL_WNDPROC));
         SetWindowLong(FClientHandle, GWL_WNDPROC, Longint(FClientInstance));
       end;
     fsStayOnTop:
       SetWindowPos(Handle, HWND_TOPMOST, 0, 0, 0, 0, SWP_NOMOVE or
         SWP_NOSIZE or SWP_NOACTIVATE);
   end;
end;

you might try AutoScroll set to false

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
Form1.AutoScroll := False;
rnd;
