I have a very small window that gets created when its parent does, but I dont want it to sit in the middle of its parent, but down in the bottom left corner of the parents window.  How can I determine the screen position it should go to (assuming I know the width of the 2 windows and the start position of the parent)

Thanks all ...

I got it working using the second solution.
For some reason using "Parent.<>" just keeps throwing up errors

Sure it throws errors. I've thought that You change it by what is really parent.
BTW
It seems that You haven't Parent/Child relationship if the second solution works ok.
