make cells in the table flow.
put ur controls into that cells.
dock only those controls into the cell whose size u wanna resize.

if u wanna set them at left or right size then set as u required.

You can set the form size on load according to the system resoulution.
Suppose you are creating a Form of size 300 X 300 in 1024 X 768 resolution, that means your form width is in the ratio of (300/1024)
and form height is in the ratio of (300/768). i.e.; you have to calculate the width and height by (300/1024) * Resolution.Width , (300/768) * Resolution.Height.

Getting the current resolution by the following code

int sHeight = Screen.PrimaryScreen.Bounds.Height;
 int sWidth = Screen.PrimaryScreen.Bounds.Width;

Now you can calculate the form size by

Width = (yourDesiredFormWidth/YourCurrentScrResolutionWidth) * sWidth;
Height = (yourDesiredFormHeight/YourCurrentScrResolutionHeight) * sHeight;

Here YourCurrentScrResolutionWidth and YourCurrentScrResolutionHeight are the constatnts i.e.;1024 and 768 if your current resolution is 1024 X 768.
