Hi ttanyag,

1.
   drop TPanel on your parent form (Panel1)
2.
procedure TForm1.SpeedButton1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
   Panel1.DockSite := true;
   Form2.ManualDock(Panel1, nil, alClient);
   Form2.Show;
end;

Have a look at the Dockex demo in your $(DELPHI)\Demos\Docking directory

Does Delphi 5 have any documentation for this besides the demo program already mentioned? Preferably something that explains the mechanics of docking; which components are responsible for what, etc.
