Moving window without a taskbar

I'm creating an application which uses the bsNone Borderstyle. How can I give the user the ability to move, but not resize this window? I'm not trying to do anything fancy lke a solid drag or anything, all I want is to be able to move the window.

AJFleming,

  In the OnResize Event of the form:

var  X,Y: Integer;

X = Form1.Width;
Y = Form1.Height

Form1.Width := X;
Form1.Height := Y;

This will allow the user to resize the window but as soon as they let go of the mouse the window will "snap back" to it's origional size.

Good luck with your project!

Sorry, maybe I wasn't clear enough in my question. The lack of resize is already sorted out, what I need is a way to drag a form without it having a title bar (or having an invisible title-bar.) using a bsNone border style doesn't appear to let the user move the window...

Try this, it works!

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    procedure FormMouseDown(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
      Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
    procedure FormMouseUp(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
      Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
    procedure FormMouseMove(Sender: TObject; Shift: TShiftState; X,
      Y: Integer);
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

var Moving: boolean;
OldX, OldY, OldLeft, OldTop: integer;
{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.FormMouseDown(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
  Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
begin
   if (Button = mbLeft) then begin
            Moving := True;
            OldX := X;
            OldY := Y;
            OldLeft := X;
            OldTop := Y;
   end;

end;

procedure TForm1.FormMouseUp(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
  Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
begin
Moving :=false
end;

procedure TForm1.FormMouseMove(Sender: TObject; Shift: TShiftState; X,
  Y: Integer);
begin
   if Moving then begin
         OldX := X;
       OldY := Y;
            SetBounds(      Left+OldX-OldLeft,
                               Top+OldY-OldTop,
                                  Width,
                                  Height);
   end;
end;

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
Moving := false;
end;

end.

Good luck,
Matvey
