Assuming that you have set your panel to be a docksite, you can use the manualdock method:


//in form1
public
    { Public declarations }
  procedure DockMe(NewDockSite: TWinControl);

procedure TForm1.DockMe(NewDockSite: TWinControl);
begin
  form1.ManualDock(NewDockSite);
end;

//in form2
public
    { Public declarations }
  procedure DockMe(NewDockSite: TWinControl);

procedure TForm2.DockMe(NewDockSite: TWinControl);
begin
  form2.ManualDock(NewDockSite);
end;

//in Mainform

procedure TMainForm.FormShow(Sender: TObject);
begin
  form1.Show;
  form1.DockMe(Panel1);
  form2.Show;
  form2.DockMe(Panel1);
end;


This could be improved by creating a decendent form TDockingForm which has the DockMe procedure already build in. Then create forms 1 & 2 as TDockingForms. This probably is not worth the effort for just 2 forms, but may be worth considering if you have several forms to dock.

The DockMe procedure could also be improved to include alignment parameters, see the on line help for ManualDock.




procedure TForm1.DockMe(NewDockSite: TWinControl,ControlSide: TAlign = alNone);
begin
  form1.ManualDock(NewDockSite, ControlSide);
end;
