How I can be able to resize and move an TImage component
or other Delphi component  (Tbutton, TStaticText) exactly
like when I use the same components at design time and move on the form.

Do you mean that you want the user to be able to click on the control and move it around the form, at run-time?

It's very essy:
i.e: to move a button named "button1"

Button1.Left:= 25; <------ x coord
Button1.Right:= 46; <------y coord

To Resize it:

Button1.Width:=  95;
Button1.Height:=  24;

You can do this with an image too.

Hi,
I'm so sorry but I wasn't not at all explicit in my question and this is it's my fault.
I'll put in different words my question:
I need to use an component (a component who is descendent from TImage or TButton or TPanel) which I'll be able to move and resizing at run-time with the cursor along the form.
How I can create an component from TImage who can have the methods or properties to move and resize dynamicaly at run-time ?
(I make comparasion with design-time, because when you drop several components into a
form you can move and resize with the mouse without problems).
Still for me it's a big question how I can manage these things.

hi !

why did u accept my answer then ? You should have rejected it and wait for more comments..
The only I know to move a component at run time, I think is:

Set to AUTOMATIC the drag and drop property of the component, and i.e for a button,
on the OnDragDrop event, put this code:

Button1.Left:= x;
Button1.Top:= y;

But I'm not sure,

Anyway, your question is one that I was gonna make one of these days, so I'm also
interested in knowing how to do it.
Tomorrow I'll drop your same question, so you can also have the answer.

bryan =)
