hi lopem,
heres the way to add the Alignment settings :
 

unit AlignEdit;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,StdCtrls;

type
  TEditAlign = class(TEdit)
  private
    { Private declarations }
  f_alignment: TAlignment;
  protected
    { Protected declarations }
    procedure CreateParams(var params:TCreateParams); override;
  procedure SetAlignment(value: TAlignment);
 public
    { Public declarations }
constructor Create(AOwner: TComponent); override;
  published
    { Published declarations }
 property Alignment:TAlignment read f_alignment write SetAlignment;
 
  end;

procedure Register;

implementation
constructor TEditAlign.Create(AOwner: TComponent);
begin
  inherited create(AOwner);
  end;

procedure TEditAlign.SetAlignment(value: TAlignment);
begin
  if value<>f_alignment then begin
    f_alignment:=value;
    recreatewnd;
    end;
  end;

procedure TEditAlign.CreateParams(var params:TCreateParams);
const
    Alignments : array[TAlignment] of Longint = (ES_LEFT, ES_RIGHT, ES_CENTER);
begin
 inherited CreateParams(Params);
 Params.Style := Params.Style or Alignments[F_Alignment] or ES_MULTILINE;
  end;
procedure Register;
begin
  RegisterComponents('Samples', [TEditAlign]);
end;

end.

that will give access to alignment property via object inspector or via code ie:

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
 EditAlign1.Alignment := taRightJustify;
// EditAlign1.Alignment := taLeftJustify;
// EditAlign1.Alignment := taCenter;
end;
