Use the TControlBar.OnBandMove event. It has a parameter 'Control' which it the control being moved.

// When I press one of bars, Form1 doesn't show automaticly controls name.
// Thanks.

unit Unit1;

    Panel2: TPanel;
    procedure ControlBar1BandMove(Sender: TObject; Control: TControl;

You may for some reason need to force your form1.caption to update.  try

Form1.Repaint

ofcourse there may be some other problem also :)  I will try your code out and see what happens

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

hmmm, i tried the above code and its definately not a repaint problem.  it seems that when you move one control on the ControlBar then other is also moved (even if it doesn't seem to change position).  At the moment I cant think of an easy way around this.
