Button Save Position

My question:
I'm talking about a button (e.g. btnSavePos : TButton) which should be implemented into a Delphi2.0-application in order to give a chance to the user to save the actual window-position of his application so that it would start next time at the same position and with the same window-size as it has at that very moment. How could I program this button?
I know that this is a combination with any of Windows95-properties but how could I use these in my Delphi-application?

You can save the form properties top, left, width & height to the registry and read it back again when you restart the program.

Otherwise you can save them to a configuration file. Personally I prefer this method, but it's up to you!

Do you know how to save text values to disk?

If not, I'll give you some code.

Cheers
Richard
