The control box is the area where the user can click to access the system menu.
The system menu allows to change window size, minimize or maximize the window,
close it, etc.

To hide ControlBox
during runtime, it is sufficient just one line of code (C# programming

this.ControlBox = false;

And if you set Text
property of the Form to “” (empty string) you can get rid of the title as well.

    this.Text = "";

Another way to hide
ControlBox: use Windows API (Application Programming Interface).

    using System.Runtime.InteropServices;

    const int MF_BYPOSITION = 0x400;


    private static extern int RemoveMenu(IntPtr
hMenu, int nPosition, int wFlags);

    private static extern IntPtr
GetSystemMenu(IntPtr hWnd, bool bRevert);

    private static extern int
GetMenuItemCount(IntPtr hWnd);

    IntPtr hMenu = GetSystemMenu(this.Handle, false);

    int menuItemCount = GetMenuItemCount(hMenu);

    RemoveMenu(hMenu, menuItemCount - 1,
