I have windows c# application having MDI parent form and many child forms.when I minimize current child form it goes in Left-bottom corner of MDI parent. And when I open new child form, Minimized form at left-Bottom goes behind new child form.
So, Is there any way like Taskbar for application in c#,
And when I maximize or minimize one child form. all other child forms resizes

Here is the idea: who needs MDI, ever? Why torturing yourself and scaring off your users?
Do yourself a great favor: do not use MDI at all. You can do much easier to implement design without it, with much better quality. MDI is highly discouraged even by Microsoft, in fact, Microsoft dropped it out of WPF and will hardly support it. More importantly, you will scare off all your users if you use MDI. Just don't. Please see:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiple_document_interface#Disadvantages[^],

I can explain what to do instead. Please see my past answers:
