wery easy

if i corectly andrestand what u wont

this is agood solution

get one timer component
and do the folowing

procedure TForm1.Timer1Timer(Sender: TObject);
var xc,yc:integer;
  xc:=(screen.width-form1.width) div 2; yc:=(screen.height-form1.height) div 2;
  if form1.top>yc then form1.top:=form1.top-1 else form1.Top:=form1.Top+1;        
  if form1.left>xc then form1.left:=form1.left-1 else form1.left:=form1.left+1;
  if abs(form1.Top+form1.Left-xc-yc)<3 then timer1.enabled:=false;  {this is stop sliding}

procedure TForm1.BitBtn1Click(Sender: TObject);

hello daneb, you did not give much information, but here is some code that will move your form to the center of the Screen, you need to add a TTimer and One button to your form. You did not say anything about relative positioning, but I used trigonometry for that.

first add    Math    to your uses clause -

    { Private declarations }
    EndPos, StartPos, Mover: TPoint;
    Radian1: Extended;
    PixelMov: Integer;

procedure TForm1.but_MoveFormClick(Sender: TObject);
{this is the button click}
StartPos.x := Left;
StartPos.y := Top;
EndPos.x := (Screen.Width div 2)- (Width div 2);
EndPos.y := (Screen.Height div 2) - (Height div 2);
Mover.x := 0;
Mover.y := Round(Sqrt(SumOfSquares([abs(EndPos.y-StartPos.y),abs(EndPos.x-StartPos.x)]))) div PixelMov;
Radian1 := DegToRad(180 * (1 + ArcTan2(EndPos.y-StartPos.y, EndPos.x-StartPos.x) / Pi));
PixelMov := 8;
Timer3.Interval := 55;
{the PixelMov and the length of the timer Interval will determin
the speed of movement}
Timer3.Enabled := True;

procedure TForm1.Timer3Timer(Sender: TObject);
  Round(StartPos.y-Sin(Radian1)*(PixelMov*Mover.x)), Width, Height);
if (Mover.x > Mover.y) or (Mover.x > 3000) then
  Timer3.Enabled := False;
  SetBounds(EndPos.x, EndPos.y, Width, Height)
