add a timer component to your Form

procedure TForm1.Timer1Timer(Sender: TObject);
VAR
 x,y : Integer;
begin
  x := 400+round(200*cos(angle*pi/180));
  y := 200+round(200*sin(angle*pi/180));
  self.left := x;
  self.top := y;
  inc(angle,5);
  if Angle>360 then angle := 0;
end;

good luck

Hi Faroug,

it works fine ;-)

But just add this Field to the public part of your form:

Type
  TForm1 = Class ( ...
  Public
     Angle : Integer;
     .....
  End;

Best Regards

Cesario

omeralfaroug - check your code. I tried it on D5-it works juuuuust fine :)
actually, if you are using Cesario's code, it's impossible to have form moved to the corner and then _stopped_, because there's no code for timer stopping => form will be moved endlessly (ok, until you close it) and it'll be outside of screen area. So, "Problem's at your side!" [remembering old programmer joke, if interested I can post it fully. offtopic, of course]

Hello omer,

you can change the Parameters:

 x := 200+round(200*cos(angle*pi/180));
 y := 100+round(200*sin(angle*pi/180));

have a nice day ;-)
