Hi I want to reuse a form as a part of a mainform. Is it possible to use the form as a control. I've tried to set the property parent (parent was a panel) etc. But the form will still  be a standalone form.

Hello
 
  you have to show the form first,

//==
  Form2.show;
  Form2.Parent := Panel1;

but if you have Delphi5, try to use the frames

also may it's view, but not show within the panel, so adjust the top and left properties

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Form2.show;
  Form2.Parent := Panel1;
  Form2.Left := 10; // or any position you would like
  Form2.Top := 10;
end;

Hi,

In Delphi 5, use the docking stuff.

Put a panel on the mainform.  When you want to reuse the form2, do following :

form2.ManualDock(formMain.panel1);
form2.Show;
// alClient = to fill the complete panel
form2.Align := alClient;
