So everything is contained by Panel1 right?

Set the Dock() property of Panel1 to Fill so that it changes size with the UserControl...

Even if I say dock  property to fill, When I resize,(minimize) these buttons overlap with the labels on the right.... I like to see All the labels as well as button when screen minimized

A minimized form isn't visible...what is the point of resizing your UserControl if the form is not even visible?

I resolved it my self - I setthe form.minimimsize = size so that it cannot be minimized less than certain size.. an dmake sure my  buttons are at the right location.

"so that it cannot be minimized less than certain size.. "

That should read "so that it be cannot resized less than a certain size".

A MINIMIZED form is something completely different.

So basically this problem was a failure to communicate what you were after because of the wrong terminology being used...   =\

In this picture, the cursor arrow is over the Minimize button:

In this picture, all the forms have been Minimized to the TaskBar:

Notice that the MINIMIZED forms are NOT visible on the Desktop.

Anyways, glad you found a solution to your problem.  =)
