select the picture control and send it to the back - the other controls will then sit on top of it and be available.

I have not got VB6 installed on any pcs anymore.
From memory it was to drag the picture box out and then right click on it.  Select 'group' from the menu and select send to back

You can not change the position of picture box placed in a MDI from.
Child forms will always be below the picture box you placed.
Alternative is set a big picture to the MDI background
