I have a W2K PC with 2 screens.  The first is my main default display (21").  The second is a 15" touch screen.  I want my delphi application to run by default on the second screen for testing it.  The DefaultMonitor property does not seem to allow for this.

Is simple . Just add at left property the width of the first screen .

For example :

  Left := 1024; // if you screen use 1024x768;
  Top  := 0;

In this case will run on ) point of the second monitor

Sorry :

Is simple . Just add at left property the width of the first screen .

For example :

 Left := 1024; // if your screen use 1024x768 resolution;
 Top  := 0;

 For width and height use normal values without add 1024 ( for this case ).
 
 Height := 600;
 Width  := 800;

 //Just for example .

In this case will run on (0,0) point of the second monitor and will show a form with 800x600 dimensions .

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Try the following

set the Position property to poDesigned

Then in the FormCreate

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
Form1.Left := Screen.Width;
end;

Thanks.  Also, is there any way to test for the second monitor and pickup it's size?

var
  m: TMonitor;
begin
  if Screen.MonitorCount > 1 then
    begin
    m := Screen.Monitors[1];
    -------- m.Left --> left position of second monitor
    -------- m.Width  --> width in pixels of second monitor
    -------- m.Height --> height in pixels of second monitor

    ....
    end;
end;
