(Several forms that is, one for the menu, one for messages etc. etc.)

The Top form like in C++ Builder is the mainform of the project.

void __fastcall TMainForm::FormShow(TObject *Sender)
{
//set the position etc of the mainform
MainForm->Left = 0;
MainForm->Top = 0;
MainForm->Width = Screen->Width;
MainForm->Height = 104;
}
//----

on the other forms that you have added to the project...if you want them visible at the time of opening the application, make sure they have there visible property set to true.Then...

void __fastcall TAnotherForm::FormShow(TObject *Sender)
{
//set the position etc of the other forms
AnotherForm->Left = 0;
AnotherForm->Top = 105;
AnotherForm->Width = 200;
AnotherForm->Height = (Screen->Height - 134);
}
//---
