You need to use the GetWindowPos and SetWindow pos API calls.

Call GetWindowPos to get all the position information for the window, then use SetWindowPos to move the window.  Changing the left parameter to 100 of course ;-)

use API "MoveWindow"

example:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  FWnd: HWND;
  iLeft ,iTop,iWidth,iHeight : integer;
begin
  FWnd := form1.Handle;
  iLeft := 0; { or whatever }
  iTop:= 0;
  iWidth:= 100;
  iHeight := 100;
  MoveWindow(FWnd, iLeft ,iTop,iWidth,iHeight,true) ;
end;

oops, there's no get windowPos.
 Replace Handle with your HWND and this will work.


var
  lpRect: TRect;
begin
  GetWindowRect(Handle,lpRect);

  MoveWindow(Handle,100,
    lpRect.Top,
    lpRect.Right-lpRect.Left,
    lpRect.Bottom-lpRect.Top,
    True);
end;
