In Form2 code:

--//--
implementation

uses
  Form1Unit;

procedure TForm2.Form2Create(Sender: TObject);
var
  CenterX, CenterY: Integer;
begin
  with Form1 do begin
    CenterX := Left + Width div 2;
    CenterY := Top + Height div 2;
  end;
  with Self do begin
    Left := CenterX - Width div 2;
    Top := CenterY - Height div 2;
  end;
end;
--//--

This will create Form2 centered on Form1.

HTH, julio

As you can see, i put the code inside the OnCreate handler of Form2, but you could put it anywhere needed: OnActivate, OnShow, or even attach it to a button, so that, when you click it, Form2 gets centered on Form1.
