You're probably not referencing the correct assemblies.

Within MonoDevelop, click the Solution tab, right-click the References
section, and click Edit References.  Within the Edit References window,
select the Global Assembly Cache tab, and make sure System.Windows.Forms
is selected.  Click OK.

Then, wait.  If this is the first time you've selected the
System.Windows.Forms assembly, you'll see a little "gear" icon in the
status bar.  Wait until this icon disappears.  (MD is reading the
System.Windows.Forms assembly to build the code completion DB.)

Once the gear disappears, you should get code completion for
System.Windows.Forms.  (At least, that worked for me, in MD 0.9.)
