I've tried disable the move item from the window menu.
EnableMenuItem only worked for the Close item.
Can someone show me a source code which disables the move item?

the system menu is a dymanic menu which the system checks certain thing and can change the menu (minimize, maximize), so in order to change a system menu you will have to catch it each time it is going to be shown and change it (disable move), you can NOT change it just once and expect it to stay that way, I get the WM_INITMENUPOPUP message and disable the menu item. . . . . here is some code that can disable the Move menu item in the system menu, first the form's OnCreate procedure which get's the sys menu handle


  private
    { Private declarations }
    hSysMenu: Integer;
    procedure MenuPopup(var Msg: TMessage); message WM_INITMENUPOPUP;


procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
hSysMenu := GetSystemMenu(Handle, False);
end;


procedure TForm1.MenuPopup(var Msg: TMessage);
begin
Inherited;
if Msg.wParam = hSysMenu then
EnableMenuItem(hSysMenu, SC_MOVE, MF_BYCOMMAND or MF_GRAYED);
end;
