    I have no problem allowing resizing MDIForm ?

    I encountered no problems when resizing allows MDIForm, when running this code below:

    Private mHeight As Long, mWidth As Long
    Private Sub MDIForm_Load()
    mHeight = Me.Height
    mWidth = Me.Width
    End Sub

    'disable mdi form resize
    Private Sub MDIForm_Resize()
    Me.WindowState = 0 'Normal
    Me.Height = mHeight
    Me.Width = mWidth
    End Sub

    when I press MinButton of MIDIForm not. can change the code above to just have two functions: do not allow to resize and allow MinButton (or allow MaxButton) of MDIForm it ?

    There is no mode on a MDI form to prevent resizing.

    You could add code in the form_resize event to override any change made by the user but you need to make sure that your code only tries to override when the windowstate is normal else it will not allow the other operations and may give a run time error when min or max is clicked.

    Often when using a MDI parent I will set the size of the form to the workarea size and allow only min or max operations
