I am writing an app that has to fit on 800x600 screen. I am using
1152x864. So when I test I make sure it fits in an 8x6 screen. The
problem comes in on the 8x6 screen the main form is centered only if
the user has the Windows bar set to AutoHide. If they have always on
top the main form is not centered in fact a small portion of it is
below the application.
How do I center the main form in available screen space not total
screen space?
I have tried both ScreenCentered and DesktopCentered neither work the way I want.

Hi Ross,

I think you should use DesktopCentered but if the screen is 800x600 you should set WindowState to wsMaximized

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if (Screen.Width = 800) and (Screen.Height = 600) then
    WindowState := wsMaximized;
end;

Regards Jacco
