Could any one please give me some code sample for this.

Note:

Bind a delegate to the resize event of your form and resize and relayout your controls when this event is fired.
The actual code to do this will depend on what controls you have on your form and how you want them laid out.

Got the soluton!






Hashtable hash = new Hashtable();

            //## save default location of buttons into a
            //## hash table
            public void InitDefLoc()
            {
                  foreach(Control cl in Controls)
                        {
                        if ((cl is Button) ^ (cl is TextBox))
                        {
            DefLocation dl = new DefLocation();
            dl.setDefW(cl.Width);
            dl.setDefH(cl.Height);
            dl.setDefCX(cl.Location.X);
            dl.setDefCY(cl.Location.Y);
            hash.Add(cl,dl);
                        }
                  }
            }


public Form1()
            {

                  //
                  // Required for Windows Form Designer support
                  //
                  InitializeComponent();
                  InitDefLoc();
            
                  //
                  // TODO: Add any constructor code after InitializeComponent call
                  //
            }




private void Form1_Resize(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            {
                  foreach (Control ctl in Controls)
                  {
                        if ((ctl is Button)^(ctl is TextBox))
                        {
                              int widthRatio = ClientRectangle.Width * 100 / startW;
                              int heightRatio = ClientRectangle.Height * 100 / startH;                        
                              DefLocation dl2 = (DefLocation)hash[ctl];
                              Point pnt = new Point((dl2.getDefCX() * widthRatio / 100),(dl2.getDefCY() * heightRatio / 100));
                              ctl.Width = dl2.getDefW() * widthRatio / 100;
                              ctl.Height = dl2.getDefH() * heightRatio / 100;
                              ctl.Location = pnt;
                        }
                  
                  }
            }


public class DefLocation
      {
            int defW,defH,defCX,defCY;
      
            public void setDefW(int dw){
                  defW = dw;
            }
            public void setDefH(int dh){
                  defH = dh;
            }
            public void setDefCX(int dcx){
                  defCX = dcx;
            }
            public void setDefCY(int dcy){
                  defCY = dcy;
            }

            public int getDefW(){return defW;}
            public int getDefH(){return defH;}
            public int getDefCX(){return defCX;}
            public int getDefCY(){return defCY;}
