Why do you need a component?
In the form's create just add:
  with Screen do SetBounds( 0, 0, Width, Height );

It's really simple to make a thing like this. You get the original screen resolution and your form sizes, and then calculate it this way:

rateX := OldResolutionX/getdevicecaps(GetWindowDC(GetDeskTopWindow), LOGPIXELSX);
rateY := OldResolutionY/getdevicecaps(GetWindowDC(GetDeskTopWindow), LOGPIXELSY);
NewWidth := OldWidth*rateX;
NewHeight := OldHeight*rateY;

-It calculates the proportion of the old resolution and the new. This way you can resize all controls on your form to look the same as in the original screen resolution.
Sorry, but I didn't find a component. I remember that there are such component though, but where are they when you need them?!!

Try to scale your form like:

Form1.Width  := Screen.Widht div 2;
Form1.Height := Screen.Height div 2;

(or another size)

and to rescale the components in form use the ScaleBy method. It will resize the components from one proportion like 75% or 50% of form size.

Sorry the bad english.
