If you are using System.Windows.Forms, use Dock = DockStile.Fill, please see:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.control.dock.aspx[^],
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.dockstyle.aspx[^].
 
Use it with some padding through System.Windows.Forms.Control.Padding.
 
If you have many controls on these panel, arrange everything in some hierarchically inserted "pad" panels combining different dock style. In need some practice. This is a main way to get flexible layout of the form, to make it size/resolutions-tolerant.
 
See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.control.aspx[^].
 
Please see my past answers on the topic:

Here's a tutorial - it's for C# but that shouldn't be a problem... Right?
