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

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

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.
