Thanks a lot,

put the following on  form resize or form create:

procedure TForm1.FormResize(Sender: TObject);
begin
with Button1 do begin
Left:=(Parent.Width - Width) div 2;
Top :=(Parent.Height - Height) div 2;
end;
end;

Use this instead:
  with Button1 do SetBounds( (Parent.Width - Width) div 2, (Parent.Height - Height) div 2, Width, Height );
  or...
  with Button1 do SetBounds( (Screen.Width - Width) div 2, (Screen.Height - Height) div 2, Width, Height );

why you say "use this instead" setbounds position is identical to my method on all sized screens/forms???

Vincent, if you've Delphi4, just use the anchor property to bind the component to each border...

Barry, if you set "left" and "top" seperately, the buttons is moved/updated/redrawed/checked/blabla/blabla two times.
If you call SetBounds, the button is only xxx one time.
I'm not sure, but I think, changing e.g. Left ends up in a call like this:
  SetBounds(newLeft,top,width,height);

Regards, Madshi.
