I would like to write an application that allows me at runtime to insert components (ActiveX)  into a working region, move and resize them with the mouse and store the whole 'creation' in a file. In other words I would like to have a lite version of the Delphi Form Editor.

Can send you something you might want to take a look at.. It simply shows you how to create objects...  It simply shows how to create TEDit, TButton, and TRadioButton which can be created at run-time... you can also save those and load them at run-time....You can also move them at run-time.,,, If you want that just tell me and I'll send you the source code... It works with D3 & D4.... It's a simple project I worked on some time ago :-)

btw- if you like how it works and you get new ideas on how to build your own I'll send this as an answer :-)

There are several components/modules etc (mostly on DSP) that allow you to do runtime form editing, creating and loading.

There is not much poin reinventing the wheel (and involves some fairly serious reverse engineering and derivation from TFormDesigner).

Manage projects of all sizes how you want. Great for personal to-do lists, project milestones, team priorities and launch plans.
- Combine task lists, docs, spreadsheets, and chat in one
- View and edit from mobile/offline
- Cut down on emails

If you don't mind spending a few bucks for this, take a look at http://www.dreamcompany.com.  I have used these componets in a few of my projects with great results.
